The ten weeks programme of Conductive Education rehabilitation has now been completed. This unique method of learning has helped to improve the quality of life for all those that attended the course and for their families.
The level of mobility was improved and more control over movements achieved by all by using simple but effective methods. Just using speech for instance, automatically triggers your movements. Simply saying out loud ‘I stand up’ and/or counting from 1 to 5 while attempting to stand by the count of 1 becomes easier with practice. Using the rhythm of speech such as ‘left, right, left’ or counting also helps with hesitancy, freezing episodes and for momentum when walking.
Good balance when standing and walking were achievable with surprisingly less effort and energy by learning to find your own centre of gravity, shifting/transferring your weight and letting gravity do most of the work for you.
There is a lot more to Conductive Education but speech, writing and walking are all linked together for everyone. If you improve one, it automatically improves the others. Because speech helps thought processes and movement, Conductive Education uses this natural link in the programme to help overcome some of the problems caused by the lack of dopamine. When following methods shown at the sessions, further improvement and preventative measures, can be achieved by putting all that had been learned, into practice on a daily basis at home. Further sessions a few times a year should help to keep on top of PD to help slow down or halt further deterioration.
Conductive Education has been beneficial to all and offers a positive solution and hope for the future.
