Conductive Education is a programme developed specifically to improve the quality of life for people with neuro-motor disorders. It is a holistic learning and educational orientated approach. Conductive Education treats neuro-motor disorders as a cognitive learning challenge rather than as a primary medical problem. Conductive Education teaches people to achieve and retain their maximum potential towards independence in all aspects of their life.

Conductive Education Otago can support everyone of all ages who have physical disabilities or movement problems caused by an injury to the brain. These injuries can occur before, during or after birth, or as a result of an accident, disease or stroke later in life.

For conductive education to be beneficial, the individual should be able to demonstrate basic cognitive skills and show signs of understanding (and following) verbal communication.
