Founded in 1973, The Lewis School and Clinic are among the earliest groups of educators in the country to innovate, develop and implement curriculum-wide multisensory education, science-based student assessments and neuroscience-based teacher training within a structured and nurturing traditional school environment.
The School's philosophy is best described by its founder, Marsha Lewis, "Our students' gifts and promise are as important to us as are their needs to repair scholastically.
At The Lewis School, learning problems are understood, not as disabilities, but as differences: the expression of remarkable and diverse capacities of human thinking and perceptions.
The purpose of a Lewis School education is to prepare students, who may struggle with language-based learning difficulties related to dyslexia, attention deficit and auditory processing, to thrive academically, as they learn to restore the confidence and self-esteem they need to achieve their scholastic and personal best."
