For Families

Families are at the heart of what we do at Paces. Created out of a need to find an appropriate system of education for their child, our work recognises the fact that by addressing a family’s needs, the family is then empowered to manage the circumstances that arise around their disabled child.

Paces Sheffield charity was created out of the need that families had to find an appropriate system of education for their child in the UK. It was discovered by them that the only system available that addresses all of the needs of a child with Cerebral Palsy is Conductive Education. During the late 1980s and early 1990s many families worked hard to ensure their child could benefit from Conductive Education by attending the Peto Institute in Hungary.
