During the lockdown period, we created online sessions using Zoom to support our families, helping them to keep practising Conductive Education at home and providing some structure for children and parents/carers. Conductive Education is very much a ‘hands-on’, face-to-face method that addresses the specific needs of individual children, and adapting what we do to work remotely means that our team has had to rethink how best to communicate.
We are now running face-to-face sessions again but some children are continuing with Zoom, particularly children with Down’s syndrome accessing weekly speech and language support.
It’s not ideal we know, but we’re mindful of the needs of our families at a time when they most need the support.
Please scroll down for speech videos, songs, stories, song cards, phonics, The Farm activities … there’s lots of information.
You can also find our videos on Vimeo
We will be adding to this so please keep checking.
