We offer a range of fun Conductive Education (CE) sessions for groups of children or individuals tailored to help each child improve their movement, sensory, communication, emotional and self-help skills.
We are very grateful to BBC Children in Need for their support to our Conductive Education sessions.
We have a limited number of places available on our bursary funded Conductive Education Programme. Find out more and register your interest.
Who are CE sessions for?
Babies, children and young people from 0 to 18 years with a primary movement disorder or a diagnosis of cerebral palsy, Down’s Syndrome, acquired brain injury or developmental delay. Please still get in touch with us if you are uncertain about your child’s condition or development.
How can CE sessions help my child?
Through our Conductive Education sessions, children improve their mobility and problem-solving skills to tackle everyday tasks. Just as importantly, they improve their communication skills to express their feelings and needs. Being part of a group helps them to build friendships and gain social interaction skills like taking turns and sharing toys – while having fun and building their self-esteem.
What happens in CE sessions?
Our qualified Conductors lead the sessions.
What happens varies according to the age and abilities of the group and your child’s individual needs, but a session may include some or all of the following elements:
- movement programmes in lying, sitting, standing and walking positions
- developing communication and social skills
- learning through structured play and fun activities
- taking part in meaningful everyday activities
- sensory input – to help with touch and sight
Should parents attend?
Yes. We do encourage parents to take an active part in the sessions working alongside their children. In this way, you can learn simple techniques to support your child in daily family life. Many parents also find the group setting a good way to meet other parents to share experiences and ideas.
How much is Conductive Education?
We believe that no child or young person should go without treatment due to financial circumstances.
As a not-for-profit organisation, CPotential is committed to fundraising for bursary support so we can provide the very best tailored integrated rehabilitation programmes for children and young people with movement disorders, at a vastly reduced rate.
Across our core suite of services, our prices range from £0 to £100 per session, depending on personal circumstances, bursary programme availability and eligibility criteria.
There is a one-off fee of £20 for an initial assessment to access all CPotential services.
