Today I found a link to a newspaper article in the Chorley Guardian.
This newspaper is local to The Legacy Rainbow House centre in Cheshire UK http://www.thelegacy-rainbowhouse.com/
and published this article for Conductive Education Awareness Week earlier this month.
Articles like this do not appear very often these days as it is not as easy as it used to be to get Conductive Education into the news, so its a big feather in Legacy Rainbow House’s cap and I hope the article will be uploaded on to the centre’s website so it is easier to read.
I have been checking for any reports in newspapers for Conductive Education Awareness Day in North America in February and also Awareness Week in the UK. I am sorry to say that this is the only item I found for either event and I know that lots of activities were planned in both cases.
There may be others that I have missed, so please let me know if you know of any.
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.
It is Conductive Education Awareness Day in North America tomorrow, 20 February, and I have received today a circulated letter from the Association for Conductive Education in North America (ACENA) with an announcement. This organisation was originally set up for those working in Conductive Education, but today I discover that it now has new categories of membership for “parents, CE participants and all program staffers”.
Membership involves payment of a fee.
As stated benefits include:
- Gain access to a broad network of Conductive Education professionals
- Vote on all ACENA topics
- Hold elected office or serve on subcommittees
- Participate in annual conferences or workshops at ACENA discounted rates
- Receive valuable information on CE, including Program and Practice Manuals
- Receive annual statistical report on CE in North America
- Post or view employment opportunities on the ACENA website
A good move to involve all those who have an interest in Conductive Education and its development and this list includes receiving lots of information.
