Cognitive Education Centers
Associated With IC&TA, Inc.

The important work of International Consulting and Trade Associates, Inc. (IC&TA, Inc.) currently focuses on the preparation of professionals to teach Instrumental Enrichment. A new dimension of IC&TA’s work is now proposed to be added to its services. This is the concept of Cognitive Education Centers.

The Cognitive Education Centers will not displace the work of IC&TA,Inc., but will offer trained Feuerstein Instrumental Enrichment (FIE) professionals who are trained but not “trainers” the opportunity to work with students from public and private schools on a tutorial or small-group basis to improve their abilities to learn effectively. The FIE professionals will have the skills to bridge from cognition to subject matter areas and even into contemporary technologies such as: computer training, job search skills, and etc. The Cognitive Education Centers will serve not only children who attend pre-school and kindergarten through high school, but also college students, and even senior citizens. Special-needs and high-risk children will be an area of concentration. IC&TA, a Connecticut-based corporation, will remain an Authorized Training Center, affiliated with ICELP (International Center for the Enhancement of Learning Potential, Jerusalem, Israel). It will remain a center for training professionals (administrators, teachers, social workers, guidance counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists and all other human resource professionals, etc.) who will work with their students, clients, and workers, etc. in assisting them to achieve excellence in academic, behavioral, and skill development.

On-site training will be encouraged through partnerships developed with schools, school districts, businesses, etc.
