What is conductive education?

Conductive education (CE) is a unique teaching method that was developed in 1945 by a Hungarian doctor and educator named Andras Peto. Dr. Peto specifically designed this educational system for individuals with neuro-motor impairments such as cerebral palsy, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis and acquired brain injuries. He believed that motor control and coordination can be learned in order to improve the quality of life of people living with these challenges.
