We offer free Conductive Education to children with motor disorders


This year, YOGA IN THE PARK is fundraising for STEPS : a wonderful charity supporting more than fifty families and young children who have Cerebral Palsy, chromosome disorders including Downs Syndrome or other conditions which affect the acquisition of motor skills. They use Conductive Education, and are entirely dependent on fundraising and grants.

Conductive Education, developed in the 1940's in Hungary, is a comprehensive system that focuses on developing and nurturing the abilities of children or adults with neurological, impaired, or delayed movement problems, through a structured biopsychosocial model of teaching and learning. It provides a positive, relaxed, nurturing and encouraging environment, based on mutual trust and respect.

One parent's feedback - typical of many is: "Alfie absolutely loves the Steps sessions and seeing everyone, he seems stronger and more determined to do things. His rolling, propping and bridging have improved and he is now commando crawling. Attending Steps has been amazing for me to, I've connected with a number of other parents through Steps."

About the charity

STEPS is a registered charity which provides specialist nursery services and support to children with motor disorders and their families enabling them to lead fuller, more active lives. We enable the children to develop their physical, emotional and communication skills in a relaxed environment.
