Conductive Education (CE) is a holistic and intensive educational program for adults and children with cerebral palsy and other motor disorders.
CE was developed in the 1940s by neurologist Dr. Andras Peto in Budapest, Hungary. The CE program combines the practice of motor skills with cognitive, social and communication skills in a group setting.
During the program students learn new techniques, and find ways to achieve their highest potential in order to become as independent as possible.
The theory behind CE is that despite damage to the central nervous system, the brain can create and find new pathways to send the messages to the muscles.
