CEC supports children with disabilities and their families to develop skills which set the foundation to achieve a great life!
Conductive Education Canterbury (CEC) was developed by a group of families in 1992 and has in the last twenty-five years supported hundreds of children with disabilities to develop skills to prepare them for life. Research shows that the first five years of a child’s development are the most important – and this is no different for disabled children.
Our highly skilled team of specialists guide the diverse range of children that the service supports to be the best they can be and focus on developing independence skills which will prepare them for entrance into early childhood centres and schools. For some children the gains are enormous with independent walking, fine motor skills, communication etc all being achieved. For others the road is much slower, but still has a huge impact, as to be able to learn to weightbear, to feed yourself, or use the toilet are skills that will assist you all your life.
Along with support for children, one of the most important aspects of Conductive Education Canterbury is the support that it provides to the wider family. Learning that your child has a disability is a very difficult time for families and to have someone walking alongside you through the good and the bad times, a good listening ear, providing you with information, connecting you with other families is so valuable.
