Welcome to the Ripefruit Foundation

A non-profit division of Ripefruit Creative, design agency, that is dedicated to identifying and strengthening peripheral skills as they appear along the spectrum of neurodiversity.

Our mission is to infuse mainstream learning environments with curriculum, lesson plans and creative systems that foster comprehensive learning, enthusiasm, and confidence for ALL students.

Philosophy

Much of the philosophy is based on the Theory of Multiple Intelligences and that if you focus on strengthening the following skills, you will impove that students mastery over their abilities and thus ability to learn.

  • peripheral skills (ability to decipher distance, visual and audible heirarchy),

  • body memory or blocking (practice of associating body movements with memory,

  • rhythmic patterning (So by synching rhythmic lyrics with music enhancing lessons and learning experiences),

  • This can be expanded to include high intuition (what can feel like psychic ability) which is indicative of strong emotional or empathatic intelligence. (For more reading see Kipp Academy, Right Brain Math and The New City School in St. Louis, MO for references)

Community

Artists, Parents, Children, Teachers, Supervisors and Neurodiverse themselves come together to learn, share their stories and enhance learning for themselves and othes diagnosed as neurodiverse. Ripefruit.orgs work will empower the Neurodiverse to share their stories host support meetings, and work with artists to create what lessons. Best of all we plan to create quantitatives to gauge neurovariance and advocate for industry change in the area.
