Conductive education for children with cerebral palsy

Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research (AHFMR) HTA Report #22.

This review was requested to determine whether conductive education as a learning approach or therapeutic intervention is safe and efficacious for children with disabilities such as cerebral palsy that impact neuromotor functioning. The review also addresses the profile of the child who would benefit from this intervention. This assessment profiled the characteristics of children whenever possible if the research studies provided such information. It did not answer clinical questions such as the appropriateness of treatment programs for children with motor disorders.
