Conductive Education

nductive education is a system of learning developed by the Hungarian physician Professor Andras Pëto in Budapest, Hungary after the Second World War.
“Ask me not what I can do for the children with cerebral palsy but ask me what they can learn to do for themselves” (Dr Andras Peto).

Conductive education was initially developed for the needs of children with cerebral palsy.

Conductive education in its fullest form is a unified system of rehabilitation for people with neurological disorders such as Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis and those who have suffered strokes or head injuries.
Conductive education is a system in its own right.  It is not a composite or amalgamation.  It is a system of learning that has been developed with groups of individuals with motor disorders and provides the following benefits:

  • Improves mobility, which in turn allows the child/adult to live more independently
  • Builds self-esteem because the child/adult experiences success on a daily basis
  • Develops physical stamina and independence
  • Teaches daily living skills, e.g. dressing, eating and personal hygiene
  • Promotes strong development of muscles and bones thus eliminating the need for some surgery
  • Improves social/verbalisation skills.

Conductive Education Sessions:
Conductive Education sessions are written and developed by Heel & Toe into smaller component ‘tasks’. These routines may include several series of tasks carried out in different positions. For example, lying, sitting and standing-walking positions.
We encourage parents and carers to apply the basic activities in their daily lives to develop their child further. The development programmes and sessions also provide opportunities to develop age-appropriate cognitive, social and emotional skills.
