Presentations to the 7th World Congress of Conductive Education

I have just discovered a presentation to the 7th World Congress of Conductive Education by Tunde Rozsahegyi is available on the Internet. The title of this is Divergent perspectives on educational priorities for young children with cerebral palsy: A case studyand information about it and its URL has now been entered in the Virtual Library’s catalogue at
Several such presentations from this congress can be found in the Virtual Library and its Depository. Many more were given at the time so if  you know of any others that are available online or you would like to send yours to me to be included in the Depository, please do get in touch.

Snippets and memories about Mária Hári on the Internet

 After including the bibliography of Mária Hári in the Conduction website Depository  at
 I thought it might be worth searching the Internet for other shorter virtual pieces about her. The list below is the result which is  rather disappointing as there are few contributors.
I was not able to find anything on the Pető  Institute website at all.
If I have missed anything, please do let me know and then I can include it.

Anniversary of Mária Hári’s death

It is ten years ago today since Mária Hári died of spinal cancer in Budapest.

http://www.bmj.com/content/323/7318/938.full.pdf

I only met her once very briefly at Heathrow Airport on the way to Budapest, but was present at the Birmingham Institute of Conductive Education when she presented the diplomas to the graduating English conductors in 1992.

 

Mária Hári started working with András Pető as a volunteer helper after the Second World War and worked closely with him as he developed Conductive Education. On his death in 1967 Dr Hári succeeded him as director of the Institute, a post she held until her retirement in 1993. During her career she wrote widely on Conductive Education in several languages besides her native Hungarian.
A bibliography of her work is now up in the Depository of the Virtual Library on Conduction’s website and this includes unpublished papers, books, articles and conference presentations   in English, French and Hungarian.
 I believe all items mentioned are available in the National Library of Conductive Education or the Hári Mária  Library at the Peto Institute. English translations only from the National Library of Conductive Education.
