Conductive Education

I did some research on this for our daughter (now 7) although we never went through with it...it looked terrific. Some acquaintances of ours took two of their quadruplet children up to a program in Canada (outside of Toronto, I believe) and were very pleased with the results. The main reason we have not done it is that it requires a time commitment of 6-8 weeks at a time and we do not have the financial resources to take that kind of time off from work. I did a search on www.google.com and typed in "Conductive Education Canada" and contacted them and they sent a video w/other information. There are programs in the U.S. as well. We've been fortunate in that our daughter has had fine progress without it but if you have the time and the funds, definitely check it out as an option...good luck.
