Spotlight on Research

Teaching at the Institute of Logopedics in Wichita, Kansas, was the motivation Dr. Lewis needed to pursue advanced degrees in special education. Since then, Dr. Lewis has been a lecturer and assistant professor in the Department of Health and Exercise Studies at NC State. Additionally, she co-developed the Challenge and Champions Program at NC State. During the summers of 1995 and 1996, she was the educational coordinator for the Multimodal Treatment Study for Children with/without Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder at Duke University. This national study is recognized worldwide as one of the foremost research studies examining the most effective treatment for children with ADHD.
