The right stuff – what it takes

Book on setting up CE programs and services

Internationalising Conductive Education
Edited by Andrew Sutton and Gillian Maguire
Birmingham, Conductive Education Press
November 2010

The articles in this book have been written by parents and conductors, from Australia, Canada, Israel, Mexico, Norway, the United Kingdom and the United States.

The journal Recent Advances in Conductive Education is no longer published. Across the years of RACE's appearance, however, a group of articles stands out as manifesting a common, coherent theme, one that has continuing relevance today. These articles may be collectively characterised as personal accounts of setting up and developing one’s own conductive practice, program or service, or even system.

Such determined and individual self-help, often in the face of surrounding indifference or even outright opposition, has been the base and backbone of the internationalisation of Conductive Education. In a continuously changing world, it will likely remain so.

There is no other accessible written record of this process, no other collection of documents to suggest just what it takes to do this, none to offer reassurance, inspiration – and caution – to those who might wish to plough their own future furrows So, it has seemed a useful exercise to collect together these varied and needed articles into a single volume – this book.

You can see a little of this book, even turn some of its pages, at: can also order it there, direct from the printers.

Conductive Education Press will be publishing a further new book over the next week or so.
