What is Conductive Education?

Conductive education (CE) is a unified system of rehabilitation for people with neurological disorders such as Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson’s disease,      Multiple Sclerosis and those who have suffered strokes or head injuries.

CE is a system of learning that has been developed with groups of individuals with motor disorders. It is a learning process, not a treatment or therapy and also a partnership between the educator (the Conductor) and the learners; involves learning and development of movement, speech and mental ability together, not separately.

CE is an all day all life ongoing learning process recommended to start as early as possible. Many centers have parent and baby groups where conductors also teach the parents how to work with the baby.

With the help of CE, the Conductors teach children and adults to achieve what they want and help motivate them to find their own ways of development. This is an educational philosophy which does not allow the child to become inactive, negative or uninvolved in a normal lifestyle or the solutions to problems of life and living.

This is not about functional exercises. The program contains all the elements together what we consider ‘normal life’. The functional activities incorporated within a normal program are not specific goals in their own, but they are the means, the vehicle whereby we maintain flow, rhythm and purpose to move on educationally and independently.

CE makes it possible to play with angels. 🙂
