New Additions to the Conductive Education Virtual Library Catalogue

The catalogue now has over 600 entries of material on the Internet, some link to the full document and some just to a link requiring payment to get the complete item. It has taken nearly seven years to compile this listing and I am still finding more material.

This new additions list is a mixture of newly published material and older articles just been made available on the web.

Accessing Information, the Media and Conductive Education

We have never had more access to information, yet we are arguably more ignorant than ever before…’
 
I have been involved in the published communication and record of Conductive Education now for some twenty years, ever more concerned about the state of ‘the literature’, especially in recent years. I think that I have come across one reason that might help understand what has been happening in this recent time.

My nephew, Iain Akerman,  is an experienced highly thought-of journalist and I have always found his work interesting and well researched. This latest article posted on his blog, originally published in Campaign, November 2015,  is no exception.

http://iainakerman.com/2015/12/29/media-blindness-and-our-narrowing-world-view/

Whilst reading this it occurred to me that all he had to say could be applied to the world of Conductive Education. Most public communication between those working and involved in CE, takes place via social media, with brief comments and announcements, and the world press has little or no interest at all in discussing or reporting the facts about it. Most press coverage tends to be in local newspapers announcing fundraising events and reporting amounts raised for a particular local centre.

As there seems to be a general trend worldwide to accept the news as given by those with control over the media, as Iain suggests,  perhaps CE will continue to be out there in the wilderness. Of no interest.
