    Whats Conductive Education about?

  • OUR STORY

    Small Beginnings 1980s, 1990s

    In the 1980s a small group of parents were casting around trying to find a better way of supporting their children with Cerebral Palsy and physical disabilities.

  • They heard about

    THE PET INSTITUTE in Hungary, founded by

    DR.ANDRS Pet

    1893 - 1967

    Conductive Education He believed in a holistic approach to education: the development of the whole child socially and emotionally, along with movement, speech, mental ability, communication, self-care and cognitive

    skills.

  • After visiting the Pet Institute in Budapest with their children over the next few years, the parents realised the great benefits in Conductive Education and the lack of anything similar in north Sheffield.

    Paces Sheffield was

    formed as an association

    of Parents

    Hi, Im Marlow!

    It was that sense of

    empowerment given to children, of motivation and purpose that drew

    us to Conductive Education.

    The plan to open a permanent centre in Sheffield had begun!

    Norman Perrin, First CEO and Founding Parent

    It was the first time I felt

    confident leaving my daughter somewhere. I knew that even

    though she had so many physical complexities they would know

    what to do.

    So in 1992

  • Summer Camps

    From 1992 Paces held annual

    Summer Camps for 100 pupils and their families, in association with SCOPE and with 50 Conductors

    from the Pet Andrs Institute

    Then we heard about an old derelict

    secondary school about to be bulldozed

    After a MAMMOTH amount of

    fundraising and with the Pet Andrs Institute and SCOPE, Paces opened a small school in

    1995 in Norton, offering Conductive Education
