education for young people With motor Disorders

Empowering Individuals for 25 Years

Why Conductive Education?

This unique methodology combines medical knowledge with educational principles to serve the whole student. Conductive education advances development and learning for individuals with cerebral palsy, spina bifida, and other non-progressive motor disorders.

Discover What We Do

1,000 Students and Growing

Over the past 25 years, CLC has touched the lives of hundreds of families traversing the challenges of providing for a child with a motor disorder. We work to improve motor function by educating the whole child holistically — collaborating with families and integrating social and mental wellness in the hopes of creating thriving, independent futures.

CLC applies Dr. Peto's theory that motor dysfunction can be overcome, and that coordinated functioning can be developed through an indirect cognitive route involving teaching and learning.

Our Programs

Conductive education is built upon the theory that each individual requires a unique educational approach to evolve motor skills and function, succeed academically, and achieve independence — whether at school, at home, or in the community.

Core Programming

In-person conductive education sessions that run September - May in 4-week blocks (3-week session in January). Students are taught within a peer-group classroom setting by highly-trained conductor-teachers.
