Howard Eaton

Howard Eaton developed a life-long interest in education, learning differences and disabilities as a result of his own struggles with Dyslexia, diagnosed when he was in Grade 2. He received early remediation and had charismatic adults in his life that guided him towards possibilities and not failure. He completed his B.A. in Psychology at UBC and went on to earn a M.Ed. at Boston University in Special Education. As well, he has been fortunate to work as a Sessional Instructor at UBC in the Department of Educational Psychology and Special Education teaching courses on Learning Disabilities to teachers in training. He has given numerous presentations and workshops at both public and private schools in North America. Howard has started five schools in the Lower Mainland. He is the founder of the Eaton Arrowsmith Schools in Vancouver, Surrey and Victoria, the Magnussen School and Eaton Cognitive Improvement Centre both in Vancouver. He is also the author of Brain School: Stories of Children with Learning Disorders Who Changed Their Lives By Improving Their Cognitive Functioning. He is the father of three children. He lives in Vancouver, BC, with his wife, Karen.
