North American conference comes round again

A very full two days

Call for Abstracts
Thursday-Friday, 26-27 August 2010
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
The Association for Conductive Education in North America (ACENA) presents the 6th Annual North American Conductive Education Conference August 26 and 27, 2010 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. This year’s conference is hosted by March of Dimes Canada.
Submissions and enquiries to conductor Mhairi Watson:
Deadline: 31 May 2010

Practices, benefits, education/medicine

ACENA's call for abstracts announces that the conference will have two 'streams'
  • applications in the Conductive Education classroom
  • best practices in Conductive Education administration
Further ...

We are looking for individuals who have benefited from Conductive Education, or their family members/caregivers, to share their successes and successful strategies, as well as service providers/professionals to present their successes and best practices to a diverse group of delegates, including: program administrators, conductor/teachers, and program participants and their caregivers.

The theme for this year’s Conference is 'Conductive Education: Building an Educational and Medical Partnership'

It is not yet clear how these three dimensions will fit together. Doubtless further, specific details will emerge. Altogether a very busy couple of days, taking on some very big questions. See more at:


I recall the last big CE conference in Toronto that was organised by March of Dimes. This was held on 28-29 May 1993 and called 'Discover Conductive Education'. It drew upon the considerable resources of a big and multi-faceted organisation to produce bound and informative conference proceedings.

I do hope, and I will not be the only one, that the conference in August will come up with the same sort of thing.
