The Feuerstein Institute
The Feuerstein Institute is a globally recognized hub for education, rehabilitation, and research dedicated to enhancing individuals’ cognitive abilities and overall functioning.
We achieve our goals using our proprietary technique, the Feuerstein Method.
Developed by Professor Reuven Feuerstein, the Feuerstein Method is a unique educational approach that identifies an individual’s learning aptitude, cognitive strengths, and the specific processes necessary to unlock and realize their potential.
The Feuerstein Method is rooted in the knowledge and belief that human beings can modify and that anyone and everyone, regardless of age, socioeconomic status, cultural background, or disability, can vastly improve their intellectual capabilities.
Practitioners in more than 50 countries worldwide use the Feuerstein Method.
The method is primarily applied in the following ways:
The Feuerstein Method is a powerful tool that enhances students’ learning and critical thinking skills, empowering them to overcome obstacles. This approach is widely implemented in classrooms worldwide, catering to students of all ages, backgrounds, and skill levels. It benefits both advanced learners and those requiring extra assistance. Our extensive network of trained practitioners reaches thousands of students from kindergarten to university each year.
The Feuerstein Method is used in clinical practice to improve the functioning of children and young adults with genetic syndromes, neurodevelopmental disorders, moderate to severe learning difficulties, and those recovering from traumatic head injuries and strokes. It also helps slow down and prevent cognitive decline. In addition to our clinics, the Feuerstein Institute operates a residential rehabilitation center with various programs for adults with disabilities and a school for children with severe handicaps.
The Feuerstein Method is an essential tool in professional settings. As technology advances, employers understand that they must look for potential rather than experience. Many workers need help to keep up with the changing demands of their jobs. The Feuerstein Method helps assess the inherent potential in employees and potential new hires. It can also serve in retraining employees and assist them in better learning how to adapt their skill set to meet new challenges.
Research has been a crucial component of the Feuerstein Institute since its establishment. Its Research Department is responsible for developing and introducing new program paradigms and applications. This ensures that all the essential work carried out by the Institute is evidence-based and of the highest quality. As a result, patients and clients can access the best treatment possible.
