Schools provide report cards to parents as a means of tracking how well their children are performing in class. But when students struggle, those reports are not designed to help parents identify the reason for the difficulty. And without knowing the nature of the underlying problem, a solution is difficult to find.
Anne Marie Bakke faced this challenge as she searched for answers to explain why her son was struggling throughout elementary school. While looking for ways to help her son, Anne Marie came across the Arrowsmith School and its online questionnaire, which, upon completion, pinpointed her son’s unique learning profile of cognitive strengths and weaknesses. The questionnaire connected his experiences with specific cognitive functions, at last, presenting a reason why certain tasks were easy for him while others felt almost impossible. In Anne Marie’s words:
“It gave me an understanding of him and his cognitive abilities and challenges that no other test has ever given.”
Donna Bell experienced similar frustrations trying to identify her son’s challenges. At five years old, she watched him begin to fall behind the other students in his class. She completed Arrowsmith’s questionnaire and found the results eye-opening. The experience motivated her to bring her son to the Arrowsmith School for a full assessment. Donna said:
“It’s unique, untraditional, but it delves into the human as a whole person, and I think that goes beyond a grade that someone is going to get.”
