Early Childhood Development (FIE Basic)
Feuerstein’s Instrumental Enrichment Basic (FIE Basic) is a process-oriented cognitive intervention program, designed to provide young learners with the foundational skills necessary for efficient learning. Consisting of 11 specially designed instruments or ‘tools’ FIE Basic is a series of tasks and activities that may be mediated in a classroom, group, or individual setting. Each series focus on a different cognitive strategy, helping to develop the children’s general basic concepts, emerging cognitive functions (such as self-regulation, generalization, and conceptualization), and intrinsic motivation.
Several of the instruments feature colorful, cartoon-like illustrations that reflect a young child’s world. Some tasks evoke a child’s need to correct illogical or incongruent narratives. All of the instruments range in complexity, challenging children to experience new information and generate novel solutions and ideas.
