Today I received the press release re the new CE portal which is now up and running. Rather than try and summarise it I have reproduced it here.
Website Portal will Connect and Inform Parents, Educators and Legislators with Conductive Education Resources and News for Children with Cerebral Palsy and Related Disorders
WASHINGTON, DC – The Conductive Education Communications Center (CECC) website, blog and discussion forum was officially launched today athttp://www.conductiveeducation.net/.
The CECC website is specifically designed for parents, certified Conductive Education teachers and specialists, other therapists, center and facility owners, service providers, legislators, attorneys, the media and those involved with the care and education of children with cerebral palsy and related neuromuscular disorders.
The Conductive Education Communications Center offers areas including a blog, links, a resource toolbox, videos, attorney resources, worldwide Conductive Education centers, an employment center (for those seeking both Conductive Education employment and applicants), recent and relevant articles, news and perhaps most importantly, a discussion forum for parents, educators and others to discuss Conductive Education resources and experiences. Contributions from parents, educators and others will also we welcomed.
According to the Peto Institute
(http://www.petoinstitute.org/), Conductive Education’s founding organization, “Conductive education is a unique system of teaching and learning for children with motor disorders such as cerebral palsy and spina bifida. It is designed to improve motor skills and increase independence of many aspects of common living.
Conductive Education was developed at the Petö Institute
in Hungary over 40 years ago and has now been widely established in Hungary, United Kingdom, United States, Canada, Germany, Australia, Israel , and others. There are other centers using principles of Conductive Education in Malta and New Zealand as well.”

Sponsorship and advertising opportunities are available.
New content is still to be added and a little tweaking to be done. I am sure Mike Szimanski would appreciate any feedback that you may wish to give and it will be interesting to see how it develops.
