Welcome to Strive Learning Centre for Children
"The difference between Conductive Education to other approaches is that it is based on an educational model that focuses on the physical, social, and emotional aspects of a child. Instead of focussing on what a child cannot do, they focus, instead, on what they can do."
Strive Learning Center for Children is a federally incorporated registered charity # 81290 9257 RR0001, that delivers an intensive form of rehabilitative therapy designed to teach children with Cerebral Palsy and other neurologically based movement disorders, how to move and function to their potential using a pedagogical approach, Conductive Education. Simple movements are taught much like a math problem would be, building and progressing into more complex movements and function, all the while focussing on maximizing independence with daily functional skills. This all-encompassing therapy addresses the varied, complex and interrelated deficits that most often exist with CP. We offer different classes for children from infancy through to eighteen years.
The organization believes that : All children are entitled to have therapy that meets their unique needs; Families deserve to receive support and guidance in their efforts to help their child; Childhood experience should be normalized; All children have the capacity to learn; Healthy family dynamics should be preserved.
