We are always so glad to hear from parents about their child’s experience and progress at the Conductive Learning Center of Greater Cincinnati. Below is the latest report we received from Christi, Gus’ mom.
“Gus gets so much out of conductive education. One of the things I love is that with the songs and repetition of the program, he keeps thinking about the movements even at home and will often keep trying them.
“One day Gus showed me how he goes from standing to crouching to sitting (with me partly supporting him but he’s controlling the movement) and announces triumphantly at the end, “That’s how you sit in Hungarian!”
Gus’ mention of ‘Hungarian” relates back to the history of Conductive Education.
Conductive Education was developed in 1948 by Dr. Andras Petö at the Petö Institute in Budapest, Hungary and is founded on the belief that motor disabled children can learn and develop physical movement through repetitive skill exercises. While “healthy children” learn physical movement through assimilation within their peer groups, the motor disabled child must be taught to develop these same movements as a skill set. Petö’s intricately devised learning program utilizes specially trained Conductors who guide and motivate the child through active moving patterns that are eventually integrated into the daily activities of life.
The Conductive Learning Center of Greater Cincinnati is a Not-for-Profit Corporation under Section 501 (c)(3) of the IRS code. The School offers conductive education methodology as an educational option to students diagnosed with neurological based motor impairments, such as cerebral palsy, spina bifida and other motor challenges.
