Feurerstein FIE Basic Course

Feuerstein FIE Standard Level I Course
NILD is a Feuerstein Institute Authorized Training Center (ATC). For more information about the work of Professor Reuven Feuerstein, go to:  www.icelp.info/.

To learn more about Instrumental Enrichment (IE), go to the Feuerstein Academy website.

The IE-Basic cognitive intervention program is designed for younger learners or for learners who are not yet ready for IE-Standard instruments. IE-Basic is deliberately free of specific subject matter, yet the tasks are intended to be readily transferable to all educational and everyday life situations. These instruments may be taught in the classroom, in an after-school enrichment setting, or used as a part of a clinical therapy program.

The IE-Basic instruments are unique. Not only do they teach vitally important cognitive strategies – such as how to gather information, strategize, compare and problem solve – but they also teach children cognition behind emotions. Thought provoking and creative,  IE-Basic delves into topics such as how to move from feeling empathy to turning it into action and how to prevent violence. FIE-Basic not only teaches how to learn, but also how to infer, act, and behave with thoughtful intelligence – even how to be a friend and a contributing member of society.

 

The FIE training has brought depth to my NILD techniques.  The two complement each other and enhance a student’s learning potential.
