Who is Conductive Education designed for?

CE is particularly valuable for Babies and Children with developmental delay or neurological motor disorders such as Cerebral Palsy and similar disabilities. CE can also be very beneficial for Teens and Adults with Cerebral Palsy, Acquired Brain Injuries, Parkinson’s and Stroke-Related Disabilities.

What age can babies start doing Conductive Education?

Babies can start as soon as the need for early intervention has been identified. The youngest child we have had at CEQ was 6 months old when they started. Age is factored in when considering the duration and frequency of the program. Parents are involved and work closely with the team, particularly with very young children.  

How old is too old to start doing Conductive Education?

It’s never too late to start! CE learning is for life.  CEQ has adults who started CE in their 20’s and 30’s. For some, it’s the first time they have experienced this type of expectation and support.      

Is there any special equipment I need to supply when attending CEQ’s programs?

All CE equipment used in programs is supplied by CEQ. Participants only need to bring what they usually require for their daily routine.  Individual aids ie: walkers, specialised seating, etc., can be discussed with the team.

What makes CEQ different from other service providers?

CEQ’s Transdisciplinary Team of Conductors, Physio OT’s, Speech Therapists, Educators & Program Assistants are what makes CEQ different. We’re a one-stop shop for function and development. CE programs are highly sought after around the world. CEQ is the only place in Queensland and one of the few places in Australia where all programs are based on Conductive Education.

How do I know if CE is right for my Son/Daughter?

The only way to know if it’s what you want is to come and observe or try it out. CEQ offers a free visit and/or trial for anyone interested.

Until what age should my Son/Daughter participate in CE programs?

It’s up to the individual circumstances of the participant and their family. Some of CEQ’s adult participants started CE when they were babies/toddlers until they were school age, and then returned to CE when they completed school. Some of them continued through their school years either full-time as part of their specialised schooling or attended a mainstream school and returned one or two afternoons per week for a CE maintenance program.

What can we expect to gain from CE?

Not only increased motor ability, but also the capacity to function more independently through enhanced problem-solving skills, social skills and self-confidence.

Can my Son/Daughter access CEQ’s Camps without participating in weekly programs?

CEQ’s Camps are very popular and fill up as soon as dates are released. Camp is offered to regular participants first because it is ideal if we know each individual well.
