The Scottish Centre for Children with Motor Impairments

The Scottish Centre for Children with Motor Impairments (the Craighalbert Centre) provides education, therapy and support for children and families affected by cerebral palsy and similar conditions.

The Centre's aim is to help children to achieve their full potential. Its programme combines the principles of conductive education (developed at the Petö Institute in Budapest) with the Scottish curriculum, and aims to develop children to be as independent as possible. Great emphasis is placed on improving the children’s motor function so they can develop physically, cognitively and socially. With these skills, children are then more able to be included with their peers, and over three quarters of the children who have attended Craighalbert have gone on to mainstream education.
