Ruth Deutsch: Chartered Educational and Child Psychologist : Senior Feuerstein Trainer and Consultant Psychologist to the Hope Centre
IE Standard is a series of structured paper-and-pencil exercises that gradually increase in levels of difficulty and abstraction. The materials are organised into workbooks called “instruments” and each instrument focuses on a specific cognitive area such as analytic perception, comparison, classification, orientation in space and time, and so on. They may include verbal, mathematical, logical and even emotional skills, depending upon the needs of the learner. Learners are guided through the tasks by a mediator who helps them develop strategies for problem solving and analytic thinking that they can then carry on into the rest of their lives.
IE Standard can be used in a classroom or workplace setting, with small groups of targeted learners, and as a one-to-one therapeutic intervention.
IE Standard consists of 14 instruments in all.
IE training is offered in two formats:
- Divided into two parts: IE-1 and IE-2
- Divided into three parts: IE-1 [of 3], IE-2 [of 3], IE-3 [of 3]
