http://www.lewisschool.org// Children who fall through the cracks elsewhere have been discovered at The Lewis Clinic and School to be bright, fully capable persons of ability, talent, and untapped promise. Ironically, as the neuro-scientific research of recent years has corroborated, the different environments and organization of the brain that result in dyslexia, ADD, or related, atypical styles of learning may also be responsible for the skills of three-dimensional thinking and invention apparent in the artistic, musical, creative, and athletic ability of so many of our students.
The Lewis School has always recognized, valued, and developed the intelligence and creative strengths of its bright, learning-different students. The idea of Multiple Intelligences is an underlying, fundamental principle of a Lewis School education. The many dynamic expressions of intelligence were suggested in the early research of Norman Geschwind, Richard Masland, Bruce Pennington, and by the studies of educational experts in the neurosciences like Martha Denckla, et al. The research of these pioneering experts has been corroborated and expanded in the more recent work of Howard Gardner, Joseph Renzulli, Dee Dickerson, and Linda and Bruce Campbell.
