We support families with children under 5 years of age who have cerebral palsy and other motor learning disabilities. We use a pioneering holistic approach called Conductive Education that incorporates learning through physical movement, focusing on the child's whole personality encouraging motivation to become as independent as possible, build confidence, increase self-esteem and help each child develop an active personality.
Founded in the 1940's by Hungarian physician Professor Andras Peto, Conductive Education assumes motor disorders are learning disabilities. Our qualified staff teach different ways of learning and functioning, supporting each child's individual needs and challenge them and guide them to achieve their greatest independence in life. Conductive Education tasks are carefully developed to challenge children to reach their goals and improve their skills. Parents are encouraged to apply these skills in their everyday lives at home.
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 the whole child considering physical (gross and fine motor) skills, speech and language and social interaction challenges.
