It is always great to have some good news to report and I received a Yahoo alert today with exactly that.
Conductive Education Center of Orlando, Florida has a bigger, better, new building that is three times larger than the previous one.
This centre, opened in 2001, is one of those that has managed to keep going for thirteen years and looks like continuing to do so. Its supporters have made sure that
The new school was tailor-made for CECO at no cost by a group of local builders, vendors and donors.
Bathrooms feature stalls the size of walk-in showers, with room for wheelchairs and supportive equipment. Doors are designed with buttons or handles that the students can operate them. And classroom floors include both tile and carpet so students can get used to moving on different surfaces.
The extra space also means the school can expand its after school and summer programs and establish a program for young adults.
Congratulations to all concerned!
A newspaper in Canada reported on Friday that a new school, the Purpose School of Conductive Learning, will open in the autumn in British Columbia.
It has taken 10 years to achieve this objective and the head conductor will be Anne Wittig, a UK trained conductor, and it will also have a teacher and assistants :
The school will be parent-driven, and there will be a fee for services as well. Esau will be joined by Forliti, who will be the teacher, and Wittig, who will be the main conductor. The three will be joined by assistants as it’s required.
Well done to all concerned and I hope it will be a great success.
A new venture in British Columbia, Canada has been announced for the autumn. Around 12 children will participate in an elementary school program which will be run by the Purpose Society with Anne-Christiane Wittig, of Moving Ahead conductive consultancy.
Congratulations to them all and I wish them the best of luck with this!
