What Were We Asked?
We were asked whether there was any evidence that Conductive Education is effective to improve functioning for children with Cerebral Palsy and Brain Injury and Motor Disorders.
- Conductive Education (CE) targets a range of academic, social, communication and movement abilities.
- CE has spread worldwide and is now delivered in different ways from the original programme, and varies between settings.
- There is currently insufficient evidence from research to inform whether CE is any more effective in improving function than other approaches.
- A lack of sufficient evidence does not mean that CE is ineffective. Research evidence is one of several factors that should be considered when deciding whether to use particular approaches.
