    Barbara Arrowsmith is “the woman who changed her brain.” That’s the name of her new book. And to say that she changed her brain is no exaggeration. That’s because when Barbara Arrowsmith was growing up in the 1950s and 60s, she had such a range of unusual, severe, learning disabilities there was no treatment for her. Hers was a struggle between despair and determination. Determination won. CNN’s Michael Schulder finds out why.

      As an adult with moderate and mild perceptual deficits and learning disabilities, this is inspiring. The accommodations she developed are amazing
