About Conductive Education
Conductive education is an intensive, multi-disciplinary approach to education, training and development for individuals with cerebral palsy, spina bifida and other motor disabilities. It strengthens the muscles and allows their central nervous system to form new neurological connections, despite neurological damage. These new connections help individuals with motor disabilities to control their bodies more effectively. With this control, they are able to grab and hold items, lift their bodies, stand, and even walk; eliminating their need for constant assistance. This approach helps individuals with motor disabilities achieve a meaningful and valuable education to experience a higher quality of life through greater physical independence.
