My name is Maria, but most people call me Marcsi pronounced “mar-chee”. I always had a passion to work with children. I wanted to find a profession where I can support others and make a difference. After visiting the International Peto Institute, I knew I found my calling and gained my qualification as a conductor–preschool teacher in 2011. Before moving to Cincinnati in 2015, I’ve been working in many different settings in Hungary and Malaysia.
Continuous learning and increasing my professional knowledge and skill set is a crucial part of providing the best possible care for my clients. I constantly seek opportunities to update and broaden my knowledge. I also have certification in Medical Taping and Synergetic Reflextherapy (Pfaffenrot therapy).
In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, taking long hikes or reading a good book curled up on the couch. I consider myself a crafty person, I love crocheting, creating handmade decorations or toys, etc.
I believe that each person has the ability to become a productive member of society. Individuals with special needs are no different and it is our responsibility to help them reach their goals.
Conductive Education focuses on creating a motivating environment, where clients are accomplishing exercises in a functional environment rather than just practicing mechanical tasks. We strive to support our clients to achieve their highest level of independence.
This support starts when we first meet the families for the initial evaluation. We aim to find the individual’s biggest challenges and main goals by doing a functional assessment (evaluate the level of cooperation gross and fine motor, cognitive communication and ADL – activities of daily living skills) as well as keeping a constant conversation with them and their families to get to know them a little better. It is essential to determine whether Conductive Education has the right tools to guide the person to reach their full potentials.
It is my biggest joy to watch how individuals in my care break down their barriers. Nothing can be compared to the moments when they show their newly learned skills to their families or peers with great pride. I think it is one of the unique “side effects” of Conductive Education: bringing people together and building a community.
