Conductive Education

Conductive Education (designed by the Peto Institute in Hungary) is a system of learning for children and adults with neurological motor disorders such as Cerebral Palsy.

For children it is taught through play sessions using a mixture of individual and group work. 

Conductive Education is undertaken using specialist furniture such as plinths, ladderback chairs and stools to encourage independence and to facilitate a structured therapy programme.

Parents and children work together guided by a Conductor, teacher or physiotherapist.

A list of the main centres offering Conductive Education in the UK can be found on the Conductive Education website. Other special schools and centres may also use Conductive Education and is sometimes combined within other therapy sessions.
