At Conductive Education we aim to provide a nurturing environment for the whole family. We welcome and appreciate family/whanau involvement so that you are able to learn how to support your child or adult at home.
Conductive Education recognise that family members are also living with a movement disorder and that they often need support, guidance and practical help to meet everyday challenges. We work with the whole family to support the home environment which supports learning and provides opportunities for the child or adult, to develop skills which are important in everyday life.
“Conductive Education really supported our family at times when the going was tough and helped us to learn to speak up and advocate for our child”
All families go through many emotions when parenting and these can be even more intense when you have a family member with a disability. Centre staff are always there for advice or even just an ear when you want to discuss particular things that you are struggling with. There are many families attending the centres who are also walking in your shoes and truly understand – opportunities to connect with others is something that our centres foster.
Access to information is often very challenging! The NZ Foundation for Conductive Education tries to keep on top of what is happening within the wider disability sector and ensure that centres are aware of any new developments. Our Centre Managers are knowledgeable about things such as your rights, the needs assessment process, benefits etc. and you can also make direct contact with NZFCE for information and support.
“Conductive Education taught me to problem solve and we continue to benefit from that learning 15 years down the track”
