Conductive Education® is a community rehabilitation program offered through March of Dimes Canada whose mission is to maximize the independence, personal empowerment, and community participation of people with disabilities.
Conductive Education® (CE) is a program that combines physical rehabilitation and education to help children and adults with neurological motor disorders or who have had a stroke or brain injury. Conductive Education works on the brain to change the body. Participants are taught skills and techniques to help them overcome the challenges of their disability - they learn how to apply these strategies to their everyday life, becoming more independent.
Designed specifically for people with neurological motor disorders, Conductive Education offers an alternative group setting approach to rehabilitation for people living with:
- Cerebral Palsy
- Spina Bifida
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Acquired Brain Injury
Thousands of Canadians are diagnosed with these conditions each year. Conductive Education and March of Dimes Canada are here to offer help and support to these individuals and their families.
