Conductive Education

Conductive Education (CE) is a system of training for people with motor disorders (especially children), which aims to reduce their dependence on artificial aids.

Fairfields are very proud that Conductive Education is a specialism of their school. Indeed, they are one of the few schools in the country able to offer CE to children with physical difficulties.
