A Facebook-blog

Four days ago conductor Ida Igra started a bold new venture, in effect a blog on Facebook, written in Russian. Yesterday evening she explained further. In loose English translation  –

I am a rehabilitation specialist for children, young people and adults with cerebral palsy, intellectual disabilities, autism, a delays in speech and language and motor development.

For more than twenty years I have been working using various methods, including the method of conductive pedagogy (Pető). I have long-term experience of rehabilitation at the Tsad Kadima rehabilitation centre (Israel), as well in organising and delivering rehabilitation courses (individual and group) for children in Israel, Ireland, England, USA, France, Russia, Ukraine, Slovakia and Estonia.

What can I do?
  • Diagnose cerebral palsy and delays in mental, motor, speech and intellectual development
  • Develop a comprehensive rehabilitation plan for all areas of child development, such as gross and specific motor skills (movement – purposeful crawling, sitting, walking, hand movements, etc.), intellectual and psychological development, development of play, communication and speech skills, self-help skills (for example, independent eating), etc. – through the unique method of conductive pedagogy that aims to create a child's active personality, diagnosis notwithstanding.
  • Teach parents and other adults working with a child ways to achieve given rehabilitation goals.
  • Select rehabilitation equipment in accordance with the tasks facing the child and parents at whatever stage of development.
  • Educate parents for a positive approach to the task before them, teach the child an active way of life, close to the way of life of peers with no developmental delay. advance the child with simultaneous personal growth for family members.
  • Psychological support for parents, grandparents, siblings of children with developmental delay -- from the moment when parents or other adults around the child have noticed and realised that such a delay exists.
I will be glad to answer all your questions.

All health, happiness and faith in success!

One to watch. A window on to the East!
