This led me to thinking about the history of Conductive Education and the fact that there is very little available on the history of its development and Peto himself, and what there is can be contradictory. I compiled a list of items a few years ago but will now revise it and blog it shortly.
See list below for books and internet references on rehabilitation. If anyone can recommend any titles, papers etc, please let me know.
