Conductive Education on the television

Its that time of year for ‘feel good’ stories everywhere and I understand that the March of Dimes centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia has had a visit from Gobal news TV crew. A session with participants and conductor was videoed earlier this week and is expected to be broadcast over this weekend or early next week.

Apparently it will be on their website eventually at there are other centres receiving similar coverage at the moment.

Just do it!
