Feuerstein Thinking Enhancement Instrumental Enrichment Standard I Workshop
The Feuerstein programme for the enhancement of thinking is widely used internationally for children with learning challenges.
It has a sound evidence base from both international and New Zealand evaluations.
The two workshops, one in Auckland from the 19–23 July, and one in Havelock North over phased in weekends, starting on the 3–4 July, are first level workshops, for teachers, SENCOs. learning support co-ordinators, and teacher aides working with children from ages 8 on. They are for the Standard programme.
The Education Gazette had an article in 2020 demonstrating the use of the Feuerstein approach at Tawa Intermediate.
Two ERO reports on the Key Competencies published in late 2019 identified need for increased attention to the 'thinking' competency in out schools.
