Enabled Kids - What is Conductive Education?

Postby healthinmotion » Wed Apr 20, 2011 7:58 am

Our friend Svetlana Frank, OCT was kind enough to share her expertise on conductive education with us on our blog. It's a great resource for parents researching the different components of a child's treatment program. You can see it here:

Conductive Education,[1] or CE, is an educational system that has been specifically developed for children and adults who have motor disorders of neurological origin such as cerebral palsy. It is based on the premise that a person who has a motor disorder may not only have a medical condition requiring treatment, but may often have a major problem in learning that requires special education. The spread of CE throughout the world has probably in large part been due to the advocacy of families who appear to have lost confidence in the existing systems of treatment. These families strongly regard CE as a potentially effective response to their needs. Because of the successes and interest in Conductive Education, other scholars have begun to examine the CE approach.[2] Research studies of the efficiency of conductive education have been inconclusive, however.
