FAQs for 2011

Help please

I have been looking through some FAQs that were published on line in June 2000, as part of the then Conductive Education Website:

http://web.archive.org/web/20090410155036/http://www.conductive-education.org.uk/2008/pdfs/adult.pdf

That does feel rather a long time ago now! Since then the world has changed so much, and so have the ways in which CE is provided. Ideas and priorities have moved on too. Even language.

These FAQs, I recall, were the final version of a line of such documents stretching back to the late nineteen-eighties. There may be purpose now in revising further and reissuing such a document. I would very much appreciate any critical comments that people might care to make on these FAQs from the year 2000.
  • What is no longer so?
  • What new information is needed?
  • What might be understood differently now
  • What new questions are people asking in 2011?
  • Who wants to know?
  • What similar such documents are now available elsewhere?
  • Are such things needed?
If the answer to that last question is 'Yes', then what other matters should one take into account in compiling and presenting such information?

  1. Apologies for the formatting. My poor little computer seems increasingly to suffer from what Ben Foulger calls 'brain fail'. Now it is sulking too. I cannot be bothered stuggling any more with this problem tnight and shall sort out the formatting in an Internet caff tomorrow morning.

  2. Formatting restored (with a struggle). Thank you for your forebearance.

    I suspect that the problem will be back!

    I have googled for "conductive education" AND "FAQs" and am rather surprised not to find more, with what there is being mainly for immediate domestic purposes.

    Does this say something about the state of things (few questions and few answers?) or is it that I am merely out of date and the expression 'FAQs' is no longer current?
