Conductive education practitioners believe that children with cerebral palsy - a form of brain damage which disturbs muscle co-ordination and speech - can improve through the right teaching.

The foundation acknowledges that conductive education is not a miracle and cannot cure motor disorders, but says it can help individuals become more independent.
