Our Unique Approach

The Conductive Learning Center of North America serves individuals with motor disorders related to complications of premature birth, Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, or brain injury. For these individuals, even the smallest tasks – eating, buttoning a shirt, sitting in a chair – can be monumental. The Conductive Learning Center of North America (CLC) can change that utilizing the conductive education (CE) premise that movement and coordination can be learned.

The vision of CLC is that every child living with a motor disability has the tools and education needed to be healthy, confident, self-reliant, and achieve a joy-filled and rewarding life.

We believe conductive education is the best option for individuals with cerebral palsy and other motor disabilities to improve their quality of life. These students and their families deserve to live life to the fullest, despite their diagnosis. We believe this so passionately that we will do everything possible to serve an increasing number of students, maintain a quality program that is aligned with Semmelweis University, Andras Peto Faculty standards (founding principles of conductive education) and serves as a model for others, operate a best in class facility for conductive education, and break down barriers to access for those in need.
