Frequently Asked Questions

We have assembled a list of frequently asked questions for your consideration. For additional information or questions about the conductive education learning process, please call or email us. 

What can I expect in this program?

The program works with the whole person; that is, the individual’s developmental needs are addressed from a cognitive, psychological, emotional and physical perspective. After the individual is assessed by a conductor, specific goals are set for the child. Each person’s route and timeline toward maximum independence depends on many factors, including the support of the family, the persons’ motivation, the type and severity of the disability and the age of the person.

Why does the program use a group setting?

Conductive education uses the dynamics of group interaction. This setting provides the opportunity for individual to motivate and learn from each other, while in an age-appropriate setting that allows social interaction. For adults we have a 1-to1 program.

What specialized training do the conductors have? Are they therapists?
Conductors have been trained at the International Peto Institute in Budapest, Hungary, receiving elementary education and special education credentials, which are recognized in the U.S. While the conductors are not American credentialed therapists, the training received at the Peto Institute parallels many parts of what physical, occupational and speech therapists receive in the U.S.
What type of disability does this program best help?

Conductive Education (CE) generally works with those individuals who have motor skill disorders such as Cerebral Palsy, however CE is also beneficial for those with Spina Bifida, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, stroke and traumatic/acquired brain injury. Candidates for CE should be able to show basic cognitive skills and should show signs of understanding and following verbal communication and simple instruction.
