Why should parents consider CE for their children?
This seems a reasonable statement:
  • their children have cerebral palsy or some undiagnosed motor developmental delay, and they wish for them to gain maximum independence
  • they would like to apply creative techniques to help their children learn daily living with the least possible assistance
  • they feel that their children are capable of more than they have accomplished in school or other settings
  • they feel that their children's aides are doing most of the work at school instead of their children's learning to do things for themselves
  • they are curious about a complementary approach based upon sound principles and respect for children’s ability to learn.
I wish that I had written this handy little list. I didn't. I adapted it from conductor Zsuzsi Balogh

- they want to be an active part of their child's edu-rehabilitation
- they need a feeling of control over their's and their child's life
- they need hope

Their teachers ("conductors") will have been trained and so will enter the classroom, after a 3 or 4 year training programme, with an understanding of cerebral palsy and other motor dysfunctions; of appropriate pedagogy and curriculum.

Teachers otherwise trained (in the UK at least) will not. They, on entering the classroom, will not understand what having cerebral palsy might mean to the child as a learner, and will not have a relevant clue how to begin teaching them.
