I received a Google Alert this morning providing a link to a short film on YouTube about Conductive Education. The strange thing was not the amount of time it took to download, but the fact that this film was shown under the banner of Parkinson’s disease and, expecting to see a piece about adults with Parkinson’s, I discovered it was about Conductive Education for children with cerebral palsy.
After watching several parents talk about the effects on their children with no mention of the centre they were attending, I managed to establish that this film had been shown on TVOne in New Zealand. Still, no mention of the centre!
The parents’ expressed views similar to others all over the world and were generally pleased to have found a system to help their children and families.
