Andrew also asked when there had last been an article on Conductive Education published in a journal.
Recent Advances in Conductive Education which aimed to encourage reports of developments worldwide and spread information about the practice of Conductive Education ceased publication in 2008 and no other journal devoted to the subject exists.
There have been numerous ephemeral reports in newspapers and magazines recently but those in academic journals that I am aware of are:
one in 2008, by Brittle and others on adults in Clinical Rehabilitation
and three in 2010 :
The first in Physiothrapy and Practice by Effgen and Chan on children and gross motor behaviors
and another in the Israeli Journal of Occupational Therapy. a comparative study by Schenker and others http://www.isot.org.il/emall/shopDepartment.asp?sc=1872&id=58974&fid=18142
and an evaluation by Tuersley-Dixon and Frederiskson in Educational Psychology and Practice at
Now we have the first for 2012 by Lotan and others in Developmental Neurorehabilitation at
All these items are entered in the Virtual library catalogue. Not many, but more than I thought. If I have missed any, please let me know.
Articles often come from academic institutions where there is encouragement to publish, or as a result of research, and I wonder how many such projects are yet to be written up and published. If you know of any, again, please let me know.
