Our Unique Approach

The Conductive Learning Center of North America serves children from birth to age 26 with motor disorders related to complications of premature birth, Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, or brain injury. For these children with motor disorders, 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.

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. The CE program is effective as it provides a daily task series emphasizing learning correct physical motions, which are 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. Development of problem solving, motor, social, and self-care skills, as well as, a can-do attitude result from consistently being encouraged to find a way to accomplish conventional tasks and movements with appropriate guidance and support.
