Book Review: Task Series in Conductive Education

A new book is published with the title „Task Series in Conductive Education” by Eva Beck.

In this book Eva Beck discusses the importance of the task series in Conductive Education. Besides the compilation of possible aspects of the task series, she writes about the properties, formal and content features. She presents separately the different task series for the different diagnoses such as Spastic Diplegia, Hemiplegia, Spastic Quadriplegia, Athetoid CP, Ataxia and Spina Bifida. She describes the goals and the appropriate exercises for those. And last but not least she writes about the used facilitations during solving each task of the task series.

 

“The use of various task series in conductive education provides the opportunity to achieve far-reaching results in overcoming dysfunctions and establish orthofunction. Practical experience of several decades shows that task series which have been designed with much care help motor-disabled persons achieve motor-experience, acquire new knowledge and develop their learning skills, as well as increase their problem-solving aptitude and spontaneity. Task series represent an important means of development.”

(Éva Beck)

I already have the book in Hungarian and I strongly recommend to all my colleagues to learn and practice to compile task series easier and more effectively.

    There is a more extensive review by Tunde Roszahegyi of this book in RACE, Recent Advances in Conductive Education, Volume 7 Number 2, August 2009.

    You say you already have the book in Hungarian does this indicate that it is also available in English or German? If so how, where and how much.

    Where is it available to buy in Hungarian?
