What is Conductive Education?
Conductive education is incredibly important for young children and adults who are dealing with a disability. Conductive education teaches people how to use their body, manage their disability and helps to develop self esteem, confidence and important life skills. The services that conductive education facilities provide is nothing short of incredible. Their work helps families throughout New Zealand.
