The Parent & Child Service caters for children between the ages of 0 to 5 years and is a part of SCOPE’s School for Parents Network. The service places parents at the forefront of their child’s learning, developing partnerships between parents, children, and highly trained and skilled staff members. By attending these group sessions, the parents and children learn all the skills necessary for the children’s independence in daily life.
Conductive Education enables parents to guide the child towards their fullest potential for independence. This is achieved through developing partnerships between the parents, children and staff members. Through carefully structured sessions in a group, the children are taught the skills that other children acquire through normal development, while the parents are taught how to help and direct their child and how to transfer these skills to the home environment. The group sessions also provide an opportunity for the children to develop their social skills and for parents to meet up and share their experiences.
