Programs & Fees
The Conductive Learning Center has funding available for local (Kent County) low income children (birth to age 6) through our United Way grant. Local children should apply to the program and when enrolled, application can be made for financial support.
The Conductive Learning Center has a scholarship program for 2015-16 school year. Michigan residents may enroll their child for a no cost trial four-week session, subject to availability. A scholarship program for subsequent sessions is available and will be allocated based on a sliding scale, to assist families with Parent Fees. Inquiries can be directed to Karen Mueller O’Neill, Executive Director at firstname.lastname@example.org

Conductive Education integrates medical knowledge with educational methods to enable the individual to learn how to gain control over his or her movements. Children are taught to see themselves as active and self-reliant participants in the world. The goal of CE is the socio-cultural integration of children with these motor disorders by assisting the child to develop an ortho-functioning personality. Orthofunction is the ability to solve the problems of daily living, such as dressing, eating, practicing personal hygiene, and other activities that are part of daily life and will allow the child to ultimately live as independently as possible. The achievements learned through conductive education increase confidence, self esteem and provide problem-solving skills for daily activities. The result of conductive education is that the quality of life is improved as well as the psychological well-being of the child and family.
