Feuerstein Instrumental Enrichment (FIE) is a cognitive intervention program. Consisting of specially designed instruments, FIE is a series of pencil-and-paper tasks that may be mediated in a classroom, group, or individual setting. Each series focuses on a different cognitive skill, creating systematic, persistent, and structured conditions to engage learners in problem-solving by developing their ability to understand and elaborate information.

Standard 2 provides training in the mediation of Categorization, Illustrations, Family Relations, Temporal (Time) Relations, and Instructions. These tools help students and adults with important academic and employment skills.

Standard 2 includes a deeper dive into Structural Cognitive Modifiability, the Mediated Learning Experience, Cognitive Mapping, and the Goals of Instrumental Enrichment.

This program supports students from years 3 to 12. You must have completed Feuerstein Instrumental Enrichment Standard 1 to participate.

Non-members, please use the code FEUERSTEIN when enrolling.
