"Conductive Education is based on a 'simple' concept of human potential; meaning that everyone has the capability to learn and develop irrespective of their starting point."
Conductive Education is learning for life. Purposeful, enabling, dynamic, Conductive Education has been practised and developed in the UK for over 30 years, bringing forward demonstrable benefits for children and adults with neurological movement disorders. It seeks to harness potential in order to create new neural pathways in the brain resulting in improved functional ability and life skills.
The benefit of Conductive Education is that at every turn, children learn how to be independent, and, what they learn can be applied to various situations, allowing a child to develop routines, engage in education and hobbies, and foster coping mechanisms - while minimising dependence.
"It has been a revelation coming to the Charity, my daughter's walking is much better and she is now interacting with her twin. I can really see the benefits of coming to the sessions."
Children learn through movements, improving their gross and fine motor skills, helping the child to find their motivation and using it to become as independent as possible. We support each child to build their self-confidence, self-esteem and increase their communication and self-care skills.
Sessions are led by our transdisciplinary team of Conductors, Paediatric Physiotherapist, Music Therapist and Speech and Language Therapist. They work together to help children to learn in different ways, by using a range of techniques to support children to become independent and to reach their full potential. This is done through careful monitoring, setting and reviewing of learning goals and providing hands-on practical small group sessions for parents to learn ways of supporting their child, which they can carry on at home. Children are carefully grouped to ensure that their social interaction with their peers can be maximised.
"Attending our weekly sessions on a Monday has been brilliant. I saw my son do things I never knew he could do! it was so lovely to see."
