MASTERCLASS 1 - Conductive education online is an alternative option
This masterclass gives overall information to conductors, teachers, and other professionals in the educational and rehabilitation fields about implementing Conductive Education programs online. Is a possible and necessary next step during our own professional development and also a responsibility as we provide conductive services.
We can hear about those special tendencies we have observed in the last decade and how the conclusion led Move & Walk to organise a study in 2018 with the aim to explore the main characteristics of online conductive sessions.
We share our initial doubts and questions with you and answer them with a comparative analysis of some basic elements in Conductive Education.
At the end of the masterclass we can hear colleagues who share their own experiences of their special teaching journey, how they felt at the beginning of starting their online conductive sessions.

In the first video we look back at how this form evolved in the system of CondEd and also hear that at the time, interval sessions were also considered as pedagogical innovation.
In the following videos we summarize the most important official forms of administration with some concrete advice that worked well for us.
We also present a different scenario of group design when some group members are at the same place with the conductor and some of the participants join the program from their home.
We introduce a new practice of how to implement a very first meeting with a soon-to-be participant. You gain detailed guidance of the thoughtful and implemented solutions of the conductor.

Eszter Horváth Tóthné
I am a conductor and the founder of ConductMe and owner, founder and CEO of Move & Walk.
In 1991, after my graduation from András Petö Institute of Conductive Education and College for Conductor Training, Budapest(MPANNI), I started Move & Walk School in Budapest. In 1997 I moved the school to Sweden and developed different activities based on CE in healthcare, school and in social areas.
My participation in ConductMe is as a generator and innovator. I hope, conductors all around the world, will find their own way to meet the digital world with success, through our ConductMe platform.
I am a Conductor and graduated in 1991 from András Petö Institute of Conductive Education and College for Conductor Training, Budapest(MPANNI) and in 2000 I got a master’s degree in education (Teacher of Pedagogy, Specialist in Education)
In 2001 I moved to Sweden and started working as a Group Leader Conductor at Move & Walk and in 2015 I also became Quality Manager in Conductive Education.
Here at ConductMe Academy I am a lecturer in CE.
I graduated as Conductor from András Petö Institute of Conductive Education and College for Conductor Training, Budapest(MPANNI) in 1995. I have worked as a conductor at North Shore Center for CE in U.S.A, and in 2004 I moved to Sweden and started working as a Senior Conductor at Move & Walk. At Move & Walk I have worked in all the different units, with children, young adults and adults. I have also been teaching the employees the basics of Conductive Education since 2013. I have helped out with the implementation of CE in the different activities at Move & Walk.
Here at ConductMe Academy I am a lecturer in CE and CE in home- and social environment.
I am a Conductor. Before I became a Conductor, I was already devoted to pedagogy and education. I studied to become a teacher of English language and literature and to be a primary school teacher.
I met this wonderful method in 1997 and fell in love with it. I graduated from András Petö Institute of Conductive Education and College for Conductor Training, Budapest(MPANNI) in 2004. Right after graduation, I moved to Sweden to work at Move & Walk and started working in the intensive interval CE department and became responsible for the Gothenburg unit in 2008.
From 2014 I am responsible for all intensive interval CE units within the company, today Gothenburg, Stockholm and Malmö including all economical, staff, quality and strategic questions.
At ConductMe I am a lecturer in CE and share my knowledge mostly about interval sessions.
I am a technician, film photographer, film editor and responsible for the support function for ConductMe. At the same time, I am responsible for helping the conductors at Move & Walk to develop their digital skills.
I find my work challenging and exciting when we now develop the future for Conductive Education services and in this way I can be part of the wonderful work Conductors do.
I am a film director and writer, with about 50 films and 10 books in his production.
I have cerebral palsy and met Conductive Education for the first time then I was 34 years old.
I documented my meeting with CE and my own training which resulted in the film “Yes, you can”, which was appointed Europe’s best documentary in 1996.
Since my first meeting with CE, I have worked to improve the view and treatment of neurologically disabled people with films and books on the subject. I have also been a driving force in the two EU projects for the academic description concept of CE.
In 2016 I was appointed Honorary Conductor at Petö András Faculty, Semmelweis University, Budapest, Hungary.
It is with pride that I have been a part in creating ConductMe. I hope and believe this method of distribution will both increase the quality and give access to more regular CE program for many people.
The manual I have written for ConductMe is based on my cultural education and long experience in film and TV production, but also on my understanding of and insight into CE.
