This Awareness Day took place on 19 February and a pack of helpful information for those wishing to participate was advertised on ACENA’s website at
and some centres and Facebook pages mentioned the Day and their activities, e.g.
Over the past week I have been unable to find any reports of these events, or any others, in the media. No features, photos, or articles have been found. Perhaps there are some which have not made it to the Internet and therefore not shown up in my searches.
Perhaps they will feature later so I will check again next week and let you know if I find anything.
There will be a National Awareness Day in North America on February 19th. This will be the sixth year for the event – now a regular date on the calendar.
See the following links for more details
I have also discovered that the UK is having a similar event but it will last a week and runs from 7-14 March. Events are in the planning stage as stated on CEPEG’s Facebook page.
I can no other mentions of it on the Internet so far.
It will be interesting to see what events are reported in the media in both cases.
ACENA has announced the date for next year’s Conductive Education Day in North America. This is 21st February.
The 4th “National Conductive Education Day” will be celebrated on Thursday, February 21, 2013! This day is a great opportunity to increase awareness of Conductive Education and promote your program locally.
Once again this year, ACENA will be offering its members a customizable Campaign Kit. In addition, the kit is one of the new Center Membership benefits. It is designed to help your advocacy work, and includes eight files:
a cover letter from ACENA’s president;
a detailed guide of how to use the campaign kit documents;
templates for a letter to editors, proclamation request, testimonials, and press release; and,
a pamphlet and poster that promotes CE.

Today is Conductive Education Awareness Day in North America. Andrew Sutton blogged its imminence earlier this month
and I hope it has gone well for all concerned.
Over the next few days I will be looking for items about it on the Internet, just as I did last year. Most items found then referred to just three centres, so I hope there is more coverage this time, especially accurate and pertinent information.
We will see.
Thursday 25 February has been designated Conductive Education Awareness Day in North America by ACENA (Association for Conductive Education in North America), see
This day will provide CE Centers everywhere the opportunity to focus on their successes, publicize their programs, inform the general public, build legitimacy, gain political support, increase client base, and drive funders to the Conductive Education cause. A CE Awareness Day Campaign Kit that provides customizable press releases, proclamation letters for local and state government, Conductive Education stats and facts, sample advertisements with a common message, and a post-campaign evaluation has been sent to all ACENA members.
I have found several other references to it on the Internet.
There have been other awareness days and weeks in the past which have had a limited effect, so I would love to know how successful this venture proves to be and how many of the 40 centres mentioned in the March of Dimes newsletter used the campaign kit.In the meantime I hope the day is productive, that awareness is raised successfully and Conductive Education is shown to be a wonderful educational system and not just another therapy.
