Informational Phone Call: This is the initial
contact with The Lewis Clinic and School. Preliminary questions about
the School are answered, and information regarding the student is
shared. If parents desire, an educational evaluation is scheduled.
2. Educational Evaluation: Conducted by our trained
Test Administrators at The Lewis Clinic, our
Educational Evaluations are designed to assess, in plain language, the
individual child's learning strengths and weaknesses. These are measured
and assessed through a variety of standardized and non-standardized
tests. For the most part, these tests are administered with a critical
eye for error analysis as opposed to a percentile score. At the
conclusion of the evaluation the Test Administrator confers with both parents
to discuss preliminary findings. A written report follows in the
mail. If the evaluation reveals that the student could benefit from the
sequential, multi-sensory educational approach delivered at The Lewis School,
the parents are invited to pursue admission.
Admission Package and Interview: Submitted to the
Admissions department, a complete application package includes: The
Application Form, Recommendations from recent teachers and/or tutors,
Transcript form current school, past evaluations (including medical when
appropriate) and educational history. An interview is then scheduled to
discuss the individual child.
Admissions Department Review of Applicants: Following the admissions interviews, the admissions department meets to discuss
the applicant's needs and our ability to meet them. If an educational
fit is determined, an offer of placement is made.
Waiting List Agreement: After an offer is made, we
ask parents to respond to us within two weeks in the form of a signed
agreement and deposit. It is from this waiting list that we draw
students for the upcoming year, on a first-come, first- served basis (providing
there is an appropriate opening).
Enrollment: After a place has been offered, we ask
that parents formalize their intention by returning to us, within two weeks,
a complete Enrollment Package. The Enrollment Package consists of a
signed enrollment contract and payment due to date. Submission of the
completed enrollment contract and payment are required before a student’s
enrollment can be confirmed.
