Conductive Education Sessions


At Conductive Education Taranaki (CET) we believe in opportunity-the opportunity to learn, to be taught & to achieve. Conductive Educators (Conductor) don’t simply try to get kids to tick the boxes of pre-ordained physical achievements; they build relationships with them, supporting and working alongside them to reach their potential. That’s why the effects of CE are so powerful. Kids with motor disabilities not only experience dramatic improvements in physical abilities; they grow in confidence and independence.

We currently deliver weekly, individually tailored, small group sessions to children enrolled in our service.

Our pathway to service following initial contact with the centre is to carry out child-centred, y-based assessment to understand your child’s challenges and opportunities. A written review of the assessment will be provided advising if Conductive Education is a suitable intervention and if so, and suitable vacancy exists, a trial period will be offered
