A couple of years ago Conductive Education Press published the childhood memories of Ralph Strzałkowski’s experiences of Conductive Education at the Peto Institute as posted on his blog. Never, never quit, was the first published memoir of its kind and there has been no other since.
Since then Ralph, a practising lawyer in Florida, has set up a disability charity, the Florida Disability Access And Awareness Foundation, which
… is dedicated to raising awareness of issues affecting the disabled community, educating the public to fight misinformation and stereotypes and offering products and services to improve the lives of millions of people.
A mighty endeavour, and I wish him the best of luck and good fortune with its work.
He is now looking to collect together his numerous postings about the set up and progress of its operations. This week he posted about this and drew attention to his book about Conductive Education.
I haven’t had the need to go through my writings since Andrew Sutton put together a book out of 33 of my earlier posts. It was impressive to see my words on paper coming together to get a message across. The specific texts were then picked for a reason. There was a key that Andrew used for his selection, it needed to have a certain flow and tell a story. His interest and focus was on my childhood experiences, my time in Hungary and Conductive Education- and how all these things tied into my adult life and my work at the time for the Jordan Klausner Foundation. The point is – he did a good job making it work as if it was written for that purpose. With an angle of course and a bias of sorts if you will, but still- it was impressively coherent.
