What is Conductive Education?
Conductive Education is an educational approach developed in Hungary by Dr Andras Pető. Dr Pető was motivated by his interest in the connection between body and mind. This led him to design Conductive Education as a carefully planned and structured approach to everyday life to facilitate optimal learning and realisation of independence of both mind and body.
Conductive Education helps people achieve their potential by nurturing and developing an attitude to life and learning which is based on simultaneous development of both movement, function and personality. The desire to achieve, to be successful and to reach new goals is paramount to the 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 as a result of a neurological movement disorder.
