What is available on the Internet to read and download? In particular, what is there for those wanting to find out more about the services available and the experiences of those who have made use of them?
There is not too much available but I hope that the links below will help those wanting to discover more.

A previous post on this blog published the fascinating account by a lady in Australia whose life had been enriched by her Conductive Education sessions
An English conductor working in Germany posts her thoughts and experiences on her blog. These often include her work with adults and with teenagers ‘in transition’ to adulthood.
So far no blogs have been found written by adults or their families on their experiences of Conductive Education. They might be out there. Please let me know if you know of any.
Videos on line
These focus on multiple sclerosis:
Personal experiences on line
There are several reports of adult experiences of Conductive Education on the Internet.
The National Library of Conductive Education’s blog has covered work with adults and will continue to feature it on occasions in the future.
On the Library page of the Foundation for Conductive Education’s website there is a bibliography entitled What Conductive Education has done for me. This lists published and unpublished materials by people with disabilities who have experienced Conductive Education, classified under Parkinson’s disease, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis and strokes.
Usual plea: if you know of any other items, please do let me know and I will add them to the lists.
