History

The History of Conductive Education was developed in Hungary by Professor András Peto

Our History

Conductive Education was developed in Hungary by Professor András Peto, a physician and educationalist. Peto believed that human development is holistic and that learning occurs in an integrated way, encompassing the sensory, motor, cognitive, communication and socio-emotional aspects of development.

He based his approach on newly discovered scientific evidence of his time, which described the brain’s unique capacity to form new connections despite the damage that may have occurred within. Peto found that people with motor disorders could indeed learn new skills by utilising undamaged areas of the brain and as a result overcome their problems of movement and co-ordination. According to Professor Peto, this ability can be mobilised with the help of a properly guided, active learning process. That is the reason why the Professor called his method “conductive”.

Conductive = leading, developing
