HYDERABAD: Learning does not stop with the school bell or inside the four walls of a classroom. Organising the plenty of information the child consumes on a daily basis, problem solving and retaining facts is an increasing problem among children.
This is common and it takes a series of tasks, under the Instrumental Enrichment Basic (FIE-B) course designed to help children develop basic global concepts, increase cognitive functioning and increase social behavioural and emotional areas.
How it works?
IE materials are organised into 14 different instruments that comprise paper and pencil tasks aimed at specific cognitive domains – analytic perception, orientation in space and time, comparison, classification and more. Free of specific subject matter, these tasks can be related to everyday life situations. This, hence prepares children for school.
■ Organisation of dots: Helps learn how to inhibit impulsiveness, search systematically, transport visual images, develop strategies and develop precision and accuracy.
■ Identifying emotions: Learning the language of emotions, understanding emotions in self and others and understanding emotions generated in social situations.
■ Compare and discover: Learning to develop spontaneous comparative behaviour. Improving perception, precision and the ability to establish relationships.
■ From unit to group: Learning to understand the concept of number.
■ Orientation in space: Helps children develop an operational vocabulary that is related to orientation in space.
