What is Conductive Education
Conductive Education is an educational approach developed in Hungary by Dr Andras Peto. Dr Peto was motivated by his interest with the connection between body and mind. He designed Conductive Education to be a structure that incorporates education, therapy and academic learning into one comprehensive approach.
Conductive Education helps people achieve their potential by nurturing and developing an attitude to learning which is based on simultaneous development of movement, function and personality. The desire to achieve, to be successful and to reach new goals is paramount in this process.
Conductive Education enables people to view themselves in a positive way through meaningful activity. It assists them in problem solving, learning strategies and techniques to approach the various challenges faced.
Who can benefit?
