Decades before educators began to draw teaching and learning implications from neuroscientists’ ground-breaking findings on brain plasticity, Reuven Feuerstein had already theorised it and developed practices for teaching and developing higher level cognition and learning for all students, even those with Down syndrome and other learning disabilities. His mediated learning, enrichment instruments and dynamic assessment are used around the world to raise student achievement, success levels and self-regulation.

In this final work, Reuven Feuerstein provides a first-person narrative of the implementation of mediated learning experience (MLE), past and present, including stories, new insights, observations and newly formulated concepts on MLE and how it contributes to higher-level thinking and overcoming disability. This is essential reading for all educators looking to improve educational outcomes for diverse learners. Changing Minds and Brains
