Overview of Step & learn

Step and Learn is a charity dedicated to assist the physical and educational improvements of children with Cerebral Palsy and associated motor difficulties. Our aim, like Andras Peto the Hungarian founder of Conductive Education, is to view the child holistically, educating and motivating the child through play to become active participants throughout their daily lives.

Our early intervention programme for pre-school children from birth to five years incorporates the educational values of the Great British governments Early Years Foundation Stage (2012) principals and invites the parent/carers to be fully involved throughout their child’s learning process.

Through play our children develop self-awareness, confidence, and a sense of achievement. Through songs they develop rhythm and intention to carry out physically challenging tasks, such as changing position and place. Our children are also encouraged to further develop their communication skills by speaking, eye-pointing, or through the use of touch. 

Our team of dedicated professional practitioners will not only offer support and guidance to the child and family throughout the programme, but will go further by promoting collaboration between all professionals working alongside the child and family, to secure a continuity of care, in-order that the child reaches their full potential
