Conductive Education Overview
Conductive education is a powerful educational re/habilitation method that enhances the plasticity of the brain by engaging participants with motor challenges, caused by damage to the central nervous system, at any age. Conductive Education was developed in 1945 in Hungary by Dr. András Pető. Pető theorized that people with disabilities are characterized by disintegrated function. His theory was that this may be overcome, and that coordinated functioning can be developed through an indirect cognitive route involving teaching and learning. The CE program is effective as it provides a daily task series emphasizing learning correct physical motion, which is continuously applied in real-life situations throughout the day, as part of a stimulating intellectual environment. This enables the brain to create new connections and develop an alternative way of accomplishing motor control where none was previously thought possible. All the CE program components serve to motivate the child, working within a group of peers, in an age appropriate way, cuing and/or conducting the child by guiding and teaching them to move.
