Orly Cohen is a trained teacher with 23 years of experience.
She trained and worked with Professor Reuven Feuerstein at the Institute for the Enhancement of Learning Potential (ICELP) in Jerusalem- Israel.
While at the institute, Orly met many British parents who had children with learning difficulties. After spending time at the institute with their children, these parents realised that there was no comparable Centre in the UK where children could learn and develop as they could in Jerusalem.
Orly was invited to work in several countries in Europe, including for a new charity here in the UK. She was granted a work permit and in fact was the first teacher in this new charity.
She worked for this
charity for four and a half years and, and then decided to leave and
work independently. She and her partner Peter Edmonds then opened The
Thinking and Learning Skills Centre.
