Last Friday, I had the tremendous pleasure of attending the final-day performance for the summer session of conductive education at the Conductive Learning Center (CLC) in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  This is a wonderful program/center that my son took part in up until his death in 2003. 

Conductive Education is an intensive program based in Budapest, Hungary, one designed to address motor challenges in children and young adults with cerebral palsy and spina bifida. The goal is to help these children reach maximum independence.  

CLC program director, Andrea Benyovszky, is simply one of the finest professionals and human beings that I have ever met. Her passion for her work, her amazing skills and knowledge, and her solid commitment to championing the abilities of each one of her charges, continually inspire me. 

I am proud and honored to call Andrea Benyovszky my friend.  

Here are a just few of the many beautiful faces of ability from that day’s performance. To learn more about Conductive Education and the CLC programs. click here.

Lives are changed there.
