The staff at the Conductive Education Center of Orlando had some big plans for the Memorial Day holiday weekend. They moved into a new facility.
For many years, J.P. has spent time at CECO. It’s a wonderful place for children with motor disabilities that allows them to get all of their therapies with one-on-one help in a group setting.
With a McKay scholarship, a child with an individualized education plan in public school can use their funds to go to CECO.
Conductive Education was developed in Hungary by Andras Peto. He believed the nervous system of people with disabilities still possessed the ability to make new neural connections, so while Conductive Education can’t eliminate a disability, it can integrate and coordinate various functions.
Conductive Education teaches children with special needs how to use and improve their skills to gain independence. Classes contain educational elements, as well as aspects of occupational, physical and speech therapy.
Each student has an assistant, and classes have only about six students and a conductor.
The new location of the school is 931 S. Semoran Blvd. Suite 220 in Winter Park. The phone number is 407-671-4687. You can also reach them online at cecfl.org.
