Description

Paces has been providing exceptional, specialist support for adults with neurological movement disorders for many years. Our highly specialised Conductive Education approach allows us to raise the expectations and achievements of these individuals beyond what they, or others, may have believed was possible.

We passionately believe that learning does not stop when you leave school. Whether an individual has lived with a disability throughout their life, or has an acquired disability, life-long learning is paramount to our entire ethos.

We believe that Conductive Education provides an exceptional philosophy for individuals with movement disorders which can be applied directly in hands-on conductive education teaching but can also be integrated across all aspects of home and work life.

It is our belief that every person with a neurological movement disorder has huge individual potential, and the right to specialised services that allow them to realise that potential. Physical wellbeing, motivation, self-belief, and volition can be achieved whatever the extent of an individual’s disability and these are basic rights that must be nurtured.

Description

Young people with Cerebral Palsy, motor disorders, and other learning difficulties are given support to achieve independence through Conductive Education.

The aim is to help young people gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence to help lead independent lifestyles and find out about opportunities to have meaningful lives. A focus is on improving and avoiding the deterioration of physical and cognitive abilities and promoting independence and self-care.

The service is five days a week, fifty-one weeks of the year. Either part-time or full-time attendance is available.

Being enterprising is a key focus towards leading a meaningful life and craft projects are developed. Projects are also designed to suit the special interests of those attending.
