Our Program - Watson Centre for Brain Health

Our Program

At the Watson Centre Society for Brain Health (WCSBH) we use a combination of the world-renowned BrainEx™ Program, meditation, aerobic exercise and clinical counselling to help our clients increase brain function. The BrainEx™ Program was originally developed by Barbara Arrowsmith-Young in 1980 to help people with learning disabilities. Arrowsmith-Young created a series of exercises that helped her address her own brain deficits after discovering research while at graduate school. The BrainEx™ Program and its specific exercises have been used for more than 35 years. Through our own research study, the Watson Centre Society for Brain Health has found that the BrainEx™ Program and its exercises help people who have suffered traumatic brain injury (TBI), acquired brain injuries or concussions.

Working with our experts, clients are carefully assessed to identify areas of strength and weakness to create individual learning profiles. This assessment helps our team develop programs of individualized exercises for each person to target their precise areas of weakness.

For additional information on Barbara Arrowsmith-Young, please visit her biography page or consult her book, The Woman Who Changed Her Brain.

The Watson Centre Society for Brain Health is connected to Eaton Arrowsmith, which offers three different types of schools for every age and learning need, with a specialty in learning difficulties. For more specific information about our program, visit our program details page.
