Conductive Education Center of Orlando (CECO) Launches New Parkinson’s Workshops

Where the Impossible is Possible!

On November 4, 2017, CECO launched their new Parkinson’s workshops which will run monthly through May 19, 2018. Workshops include an information session, workbook, 6 hours of conductive education, and a complementary follow-up consultation. Participants work to improve posture, tremors, balance, coordination, freezing, writing technique, and the control of involuntary movements.

Located in Winter Park, Florida and founded in 2001, CECO believes the impossible is possible and works to transform the lives of those with motor disabilities. CECO is the second-largest of 42 conductive education centers in the United States. In addition to the Parkinson’s workshops, CECO offers year-long private and after school programs, in-home therapy, and summer camps.

According to CECO, conductive education is a rehabilitative program started in the 1940’s by physician and educator, Andras Peto. The program employs a holistic motivational approach which embodies all aspects of human development, and aims to concurrently improve physical, cognitive, communication, social and emotional abilities.
