Teacher Training Programs in Cognitive Enrichment
Cognitive Enrichment hosted by SCEL
Well-trained teachers are essential to the successful implementation of any Cognitive Enrichment program. Thus, teacher training is one of the primary services provided by the Southeastern Center. Our director and staff conduct training at the SCEL training center in south metro Atlanta or on site for clients.
SCEL offers training for teachers in all five levels of Feuerstein's Instrumental Enrichment (IE) (Three levels IE Standard and two levels IE basic). Training for each level of IE requires 45 hours of study with a certified trainer. Training for those who wish to administer the LPAD is also available.
SCEL now has four Certified FIE Trainers on staff, and in the summer of 2008, Dr. Wood completed her ICELP Internship to become a Certified LPAD Trainer. This will enable SCEL to offer all levels of training for FIE Basic, FIE Standard, and LPAD utilizing our own staff. (There are only four Certified LPAD Trainers in the U.S.)
Summer Workshops (training) at SCEL
The most concentrated time for training in both IE and LPAD comes during the SCEL annual summer training sessions. (See Training for the upcoming summer training schedule, as well as other information about training options.)
Independent school systems, individual schools, organizations, etc. may contract with SCEL for on-site training, using our Model for Systemic Implementation as a guide. SCEL staffers have most recently trained teachers to use the IE intervention for school systems in Pensacola, Jacksonville, Minneapolis, Houston, and New Orleans.
See Training menu for more information about on-site training options.
