Conductive Education was developed in Hungary in 1945 by Dr. Andras Peto.
The goal of a Conductive Education program is to enable a motor-disabled person to function independently, not only physically, but also academically and socially as well. The main feature that differentiates conductive education from traditional therapies is that one to two conductors provide several types of integrated activities, such as education, gross and small motor development, and speech therapy, simultaneously.
The Conductive Education Center of Metro Detroit (CECMD) - - a 501c(3) non-profit organization - - was incorporated in June 1999 by this group of parents of children with cerebral palsy. The result was the CECMD, which has been providing Conductive Education, at no charge, to children since September 1999. The gains seen are positively life changing.
