ABOUT THE CEC
The Cognitive Enhancement Centre is an educational facility dedicated to helping students with learning difficulties reach their full potential. The CEC offers courses of study developed by the world renowned Arrowsmith Program – a program based on the application of neuroscientific research which works to help students strengthen the weak cognitive capacities underlying a range of learning difficulties.
We are here to help enable students to reach their full potential and become self-sufficient, confident learners through cognitive training, support and compassion.
Rita Margarita: Executive Director
A mother’s search for a solution for her son with learning difficulties, who was being failed by the conventional school system, led her to try many alternatives and eventually found the Arrowsmith Program. Through the program’s assessment and tailored cognitive training, her son has transformed into a confident and independent individual, and has now returned to a mainstream school, where he is thriving.
This mother is Rita Margarita, and this transformational moment inspired her to bring the Arrowsmith Program to Switzerland by founding the Cognitive Enhancement Centre. She hopes to help others struggling with a range of learning difficulties, by offering this revolutionary program.
