A few months ago the possibility of publishing a book of blog postings made by Ralph Strzalkowski about his time at the Pető Institute, and his life as a man with cerebral palsy was put to Ralph by Conductive Education Press, and he agreed. Since then we have extracted relevant postings and intend to publish at the time of the forthcoming CE World Congress, in October, at which Ralph will be a key-note speaker.
Today Ralph has posted on his blog his thoughts about this at
This book may be an eye-opener, as a child’s perspective of Conductive Education has not been published before. Parents, professionals and researchers have all reported their experiences, thoughts, and opinions, but the memories and experiences of the children have not featured in CE literature. A very different and interesting perspective.
Ralph shows himself to be determined, realistic, hard-working and personifies Pető’s principle that ‘you should never give up’.
Further information about the book will follow soon. Watch this space.
