WHAT MAKES CONDUCTIVE EDUCATION UNIQUE? 
Conductive education is a learning method for individuals with neurological motor disabilities, like but not limited to cerebral palsy, which integrates an intensive and motivating approach to the development of gross and fine motor skills, mobility and balance, flexibility and motion, social skills, communication, and speech – allowing individuals to maximize their physical independence and strength. Conductive education is based on the idea that despite the damage to the nervous system, it still possesses the capacity to form new neural connections. Combining conductive education strategies with special education tools, essential academic and daily life skills are taught. Through conductive education, CECO allows individuals to build confidence while becoming self-reliant to the best of their ability. Teaching self-care and problem-solving skills with a positive attitude – individuals with special needs learn to do what was previously thought to be impossible at CECO.
