Scope School for Parents
The principals of Conductive Education are used and taught to the parents/carers of children with Cerebral Palsy and other motor disorders. The system which originated in Budapest was developed by Professor Andras Peto in the late 1940s and reached Britain in the mid 1960s.
Although the system is 60 years old, the enthusiasm and dynamics of the group work is still as fresh and lively as with any other group of children in today's society. The children engage in conscious active learning in a small group with their parent/carer, taking instruction from trained Scope practitioners.
School for Parents follows the document: 'The Early Years Foundation Stage'. Setting the standards for Learning, Development and Care for the Children from birth to five.
Curriculum material is delivered through a multi-sensory approach. Great emphasis is placed on speaking and listening so that the child learns to use a more functional pattern of movement by guiding his/her own actions with vocalisation/speech/signing.
Parents are guided to assist their child to become more independent.
The aim is to use a holistic approach to change 'dysfunction' into 'orthofunction'.
Thereby the child will establish the skills of daily living
e.g. dressing, feeding, walking, transferring movements etc.
School for Parents promotes all areas of the 'Every Child Matters' agenda and shares knowledge with all our parents and carers.
