The Feuerstein Institute is pleased to announce the opening of a new Feuerstein Cognitive Rehabilitation Center in Kfar Saba, Israel! Located in the center of the country, the establishment of a center in Kfar Saba allows us to bring the popular Feuerstein Method for treating brain and head injuries to a wider audience. The center, which treats 22 men and women with head and brain injuries, has already attracted the attention of the Israeli Ministry of Health, who wish to see it expand to serve an even greater number of patients in the coming year.
As a child, Joel was immature and a little slower than the other children. While he never received a formal diagnosis of a developmental disorder, both his family and teachers were content to place him in special needs classes throughout his schooling. This did not please Joel, who only ever wanted to be a part of mainstream society.
When Joel was 21, he dreamed of serving in the army. He applied through traditional channels, only to be told that army service was not a "good fit" for him. Joel began to despair; a born and bred Israeli, he believes that army service is an important part rite of passage for every young man. That was when he discovered the Feuerstein Institute.
Through the Institute, Joel served as an army volunteer. He moved into our residential facility, where our staff worked with him on the skills required to gain independance and further integrate into society. After Joel completed his army service, he turned to his counselors and asked, "What's next? I want to do more." In response, the staff helped him procure employment. When he later showed interest in meeting dating, the staff coached him on dating etiquette and signed him up for date mixers.
For the past two and a half years, Joel has held a steady job at one of Jerusalem's top steakhouses - his performance has been so exemplary that recently, the head chef enrolled Joel in culinary school, so as to be able to promote him to sous-chef. Joel has also maintained a meaningful relationship with his girlfriend of the past two years.
We are pleased to share another new edition from Professor Reuven Feuerstein and Professor Louis Falik.
Originally developed to help students overcome learning obstacles created by emotional trauma or neurobiological learning disabilities, the Feuerstein Method is now employed throughout the world to support improved thinking and learning in students. This book provides the most up-to-date summary of the rationale behind the Feuerstein Method and includes accessible descriptions of the tools and their application for cognitive modifiablilty and mediated learning. With dramatic case studies throughout the text, Feuerstein and his co-authors define intelligence as a dynamic force that drives the human organism to change the structure of thinking in order to answer the needs it encounters. They describe in detail the specific skills of the three stages of thinking:
They show how student thinking can stall in multiple ways at any of these stages and how intentional mediation can help students restructure their thinking and improve their ability to learn. Similar to cognitive mediated learning, the authors address mediation of the social and emotional skills that impact learning. This new book from will inform the work of any educator seeking to improve student achievement in their school or district.
