Conductive Education (CE).
Conductive Education comprises a system of integrated academic and physical education that was first developed by Professor András Pető in Budapest, Hungary. The system was designed specifically for children with movement disorders of a neurological origin. It is based on the premise that such children do not simply have a medical condition requiring treatment, but a learning problem requiring targeted education. We now know from scientific research that young children with neurological damage have remarkable abilities to recover full or greatly improved functioning if exposed to the proper stimuli and motivations. Conductor-teachers provide a holistic and systematic development program that targets all aspects of a child's life, including gross and fine motor skills, cognition, volition, communication, social skills, and emotional development.
