Conductive Education is a comprehensive, intensive and multi-disciplinary approach to education, training, and development for individuals with cerebral palsy, spina bifida and other motor challenges. It focuses on the skills needed to become more independent and social.
Using a combination of medical knowledge and education strategies, individuals learn how to advance control of their motor functions to reach their fullest potential.
An important aspect of Conductive Education involves the ability for students to socialize. At St. Joseph Center for Special Learning, we offer small, morning and afternoon peer group sessions.
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.
