What is Feuersteins Instrumental Enrichment (FIE)?


Developed by renowned psychologist Prof. Reuven Feuerstein, the Feuerstein Method has been proven to help learners of all ages improve how they learn. Prof. Feuerstein was revolutionary in his work that demonstrated that cognitive ability is not static; according to Prof. Feuerstein, a person’s cognitive ability is able to be developed using certain strategies.

The Feuerstein Method combines specially designed “instruments” (learning activities) and mediation (the verbal give and take discussing the activity that enhances the learning experience). Using this combination, learners can learn how to work with others, think strategically, communicate effectively, anticipate the results of his/her actions, and more. Used in more than 40 countries, the theories of Prof. Feuerstein have been implemented in schools, clinical settings, and in afterschool enrichment settings for over half a century.
