Footprints Conductive Education Centre We’re a Nottingham-based service that aims to support children with movement, mobility or genetic conditions (e.g. cerebral palsy and Down’s syndrome) and their families through the principles and practice of Conductive Education, a holistic method that views the ‘whole child’.
We teach children with disabilities practical skills that can help develop their independence and prepare them for the future. These include communicating, movement and posture and problem-solving. We try and build ‘everyday’ activities into our sessions, so children also learn things like eating, drinking and playing. The parent or relative attends with the child to learn techniques to use at home and get tips and emotional support from the team and other families.
