What is Conductive Education ?
A rehabilitation strategy for anyone with a physical disability.
Conductive Education (CE) is an intensive approach to education, training and development for children and adults with motor disabilities, especially cerebral palsy. It teaches them to learn to achieve their optimal independence in movements, upright posture, self-care skills, communication and socialisation.
It is an holistic approach that focuses on the whole person, integrating motor skills with cognitive and emotional skill development in a group setting.
It calls for active participation from the child by enthusiastic motivation and building self-esteem through successful activities.
The emphasis is on active learning, not treatment.
