Conductive Education (CE) is an educational approach developed in Hungary by Dr Andras Peto. Peto was motivated by his interest in the rehabilitation of individuals who suffered with physical disabilities. His real interest was with the connection between body and mind. He designed CE to be a structure that incorporated education, therapy and academic learning into one comprehensive approach.
Conductive Education aims to help individuals achieve orthofunction. This goal changes as individuals are encouraged to push the limits on what they regarded as achievable. Individuals are encouraged to realise their potential by synchronously nurturing their approach to learning while developing movement, function and personality. Meaningful activities develop a positive frame of mind that enables them to devise strategies and techniques to overcome the challenges ahead.
While developed mainly for individuals with neurological motor disorders, such as cerebral palsy, conductive education can support a range of conditions including developmental delay disorders and dyspraxia.
Conductive Education is delivered by a conductor however, at Horton Lodge delivery is through a multi-disciplinary team overseen and trained by three speacialist conductors.
