Conductive Education is an intensive, multi-disciplinary approach to education, training and
development for individuals with cerebral palsy, spina bifida and other motor challenges.
Conductive Education is a comprehensive method of learning.
Conductive Education focuses on the skills needed to become more independent. Through a
combination of medical knowledge and educational methods, individuals learn how to gain
control of their motor functions. This comprehensive method teaches the child how they can use
and improve their skills to achieve their fullest potential.
At Joseph Center for Special Learning, we offer morning and afternoon group sessions
composed of peers in a small group environment. An important aspect of Conductive Education
involves the ability for students to socialize. Conductive Education allows individuals with
motor disabilities to build cognitive skills and learn alternate strategies to accomplish common
motor tasks such as sitting, standing, eating and walking.
