The Feuerstein Method can be used in various settings and has been employed in over forty countries. It is effective in reducing anxiety, increasing confidence, and enhancing intrinsic motivation. The method involves a series of pencil and paper tasks that target different cognitive skills, leading to an overall feeling of well-being.
Our tutor Jude Robinson has been trained by Israeli teachers and believes that it is a valuable way to improve cognitive skills. According to Jude “The Feuerstein method of learning is highly recommended as it aligns with the values of the individual and the organisation.
Jude is a trained practitioner of the Feuerstein method of learning. She is fortunate enough to have been trained by Israeli teachers where the school of Feuerstein is based.
As Jude says “Intelligence is not static.” and the Feuerstein Method provides a new way of thinking and learning.
Feuerstein Level 1:
Feuerstein Level 1 is an introduction to a new way of thinking and learning.
The Feuerstein Method can benefit anyone interested in attaining new thinking and learning skills. The Feuerstein Method is employed in over forty countries around the world, and in a wide variety of settings. It has not only withstood the test of time, but it is also as useful in the classroom as it is in a clinical setting, with older adults and people with intellectual disabilities or brain injuries, and as part of vocational training. The purpose is to improve cognitive skills. The benefits are, a reduction in anxiety, more confidence, intrinsic motivation, and a general feeling of well-being. This is achieved through a mediated learning series of specific progression with pencil and paper tasks with each series focusing on a different cognitive skill.

This is the progression to more in-depth pencil and paper tasks that increase the cognitive capacity to think and learn in a different way.
For aging, it can improve memory capacity, increase confidence, and give insight into new ways to adapt to aging with a more positive and meaningful approach.
For learners with an intellectual disability or brain injury, it brings new learning abilities to enhance their thinking and capabilities and close learning gaps.
Vocational learners are taught new ways of thinking by completing tasks in areas such as comparison, classification, analysis and synthesis, orientation in space and time, and hypothetical reasoning. Armed with these new strategies learners then “bridge” these new strategies to curricular subjects and problem solve in their everyday lives.
For all groups with the acquisition of new concepts, cognitive operations, and metacognition skills, come increased motivation for learning, or completing things in a different way, self-regulation and a shift in attitude transforming any passiveness into positive outcomes.
