What is Conductive Education?

west-syndrome-educationConductive Education is a programme developed specifically to improve the quality of life for people with neuro-motor disorders. It is a holistic learning and educational orientated approach. Conductive Education treats neuro-motor disorders as a cognitive learning challenge rather than as a primary medical problem. Conductive Education teaches children to achieve and retain their maximum potential towards independence in all aspects of their life.
