Mission Statement

To provide opportunities for preschool and school age children with motor challenges to achieve optimal physical, cognitive and social independence through the application and promotion of conductive education principles.

Description

The Conductive Learning Center (CLC) serves children who are affected by motor disorders, primarily cerebral palsy, spina bifida and traumatic brain or spinal injuries. CLC uses an educational based rehabilitation program that is delivered in a classroom setting to groups of children of like ages and like abilities, to teach the children how to move and control their bodies so that they can learn to do more things for themselves and become more independent in their daily lives. The program is very intensive, in that the children attend for 25 to 30 hours per week, for four weeks at a time and these 4 week sessions are offered throughout the school year and during a summer camp. It is a unique, holistic approach that focuses on the entire child, teaching them fine and gross motor skills, communication skills, social skills and life skills, like how to feed and dress themselves as well as how to take care of their own personal needs. The method is called conductive education and was developed in the 1940's in Budapest, Hungary by Dr. Adres Peto who was a medical professional as well as an educator.
