DOWN'S AND CE

What's new over the last nine years?

I had reason to day to look out up items on the Internet (using Google) that refer to both “conductive education and to “reuven feuerstein”.

There appear to be surprisingly few.

Among them I found the following item 'Conductive Education and Down’s syndrome':


I started to scan down and thought: 'My, I do agree with this'. Then I thought 'No wonder, I wrote it!'

To the site's credit, though there is no mention of my authorship, there is a link to the orignal posting from which it had been lifted:


No problem, no harm done, but those who republish or even just quote other people's writings really do owe it to their readers to indicate where their stuff comes from. Authors might be grateful too.

Everyone would benefit from including the date of the original article. This was published out nine years ago and the field ought to have advanced since then (me too!)

CE and Down's

I know that it is no longer so unusual for some children with Down's syndrome to work with conductors. Presumably some adults too. As is often the way in Conductive Education, however, no coherent literature has emerged from such innovative work.

I would be happy to be corrected on this.
