We use a pioneering holistic approach, called Conductive Education that incorporates physical therapy, teaching and learning aimed at developing a child's muscle control, movement and posture. The approach focuses on improving the physical effects of a disability while encouraging motivation to become independent, build confidence, increase self-esteem and help each child develop an active personality.
Parents and children work together in small group sessions tailored to their needs. Through fun and engaging activities and song, children learn supportive physical techniques to unlock their inner strength.
We focus on active sitting, standing and movement and these practices can then be carried on in the home environment. Through repetition of movement, children learn more about their physicality and develop their motor skills enabling each child to be as independent as he or she will ever be.
