Families & carers
Conductive Education recognises that family members are also living with the diagnosis of the person they care for. The diagnosis of any neurological condition, at any age, changes life for every member of the family. Parents, spouses, siblings and children can face new challenges and in order to meet these require support and training from a range of people.
Conductors work alongside family members and offer a range of different services. These may vary from attending sessions with your child/partner, observing work in the groups, meeting others in a similar situation or even providing a well needed break from the day to day challenges while your child/partner is attending the sessions.
In order to provide a more formal support network we also provide a range of workshops for family members. These include:
- working and playing with your baby – for parents of new born children with cerebral palsy (up to the age of 3 years)
- teaching your child to develop everyday skills (for parents of children aged 3 to 11 years)
- understanding adolescence, adulthood and cerebral palsy (for parents of children aged 11 – 18yrs)
- Understanding and supporting your partner with Parkinson’s
- Understanding and supporting your partner who has had a stroke
- Understanding and supporting your partner who has multiple sclerosis.
