Announcement

On behalf of the management of the Pető College and of its Practice Education Institute we express our sincere thanks for the well-meaning inquiries and the support we have received following media releases in connection with the name of the Pető Institute in the past few months.

In the current situation, as always before, all our efforts are concentrated on our mission: the conductive development of those in our care and the training of our students.

In the interest of solving the problems we have been facing since 2005, we shall resume previously initiated consultations with the competent authorities; we have the supportive cooperation of the government.

In our present announcement we distance ourselves from and protest against any representation of the difficult situation of the Pető Institute as hopeless and critical, be it in Hungary or abroad.

Franz Schaffhauser PhD
Rector


 Ankündigung

Im Namen der Leitung der Pető-Hochschule und des von ihr getragenen Praktikumsinstituts bedanken wir uns für das wohlgemeinte Interesse und die Unterstützung, die wir nach den in Zusammenhang mit dem Namen des Pető Instituts in den vergangenen Monaten veröffentlichten Pressemitteilungen erhalten haben.

In der aktuellen Situation, wie früher auch immer, setzen wir all unsere Kraft für unsere Berufung, nämlich die konduktive Förderung unserer Betreuten und die Ausbildung unserer Studenten ein.

Im Interesse der Lösung unserer seit 2005 bestehenden Probleme setzen wir bereits begonnene Konsultationen mit den zuständigen Behörden fort; wir genießen die unterstützende Kooperation der Regierung.

In der vorliegenden Ankündigung distanzieren wir uns davon und protestieren dagegen, dass die schwierige Situation des Pető Instituts sowohl in Ungarn als auch im Ausland als unlösbar und kritisch dargestellt wird.

Dr. Franz Schaffhauser
Rektor

Drawing and Painting Competition

Print PDF

The András Pető Institute of Conductive Education and Conductor Training College and The International Pető Association invited children and youth receiving or having received conductive education to participate in a Drawing and Painting Competition.

Deciding on prizes proved to be a pleasant but at the same time difficult task for the jury. A huge number of valuable pieces of art had been submitted from different parts of the world. Winners were selected in three age groups and categories. For the list of winners please see the attachment.

Winners’ names will be formally announced in the 8th World Congress on Conductive Education which is to take place from 9 to 12 October 2013 in Munich.

Those who are unable to attend or request postal delivery in writing will receive their prizes by mail.

A part of the pieces of art sent in for the contest will be on display in exhibitions, on the Internet and also in printed form. We are also planning to arrange a travelling exhibition among the facilities of the member organisations.

The András Pető Institute Of Conductive Education And College For Conductor Training

The Principle and Aim of Conductive Education

Print PDF
Physician and educator András Pető developed his conductive educational system after World War II, in 1945. His method opened up a new way for the rehabilitation of motor disordered children and adults whose dysfunction was due to damages to the central nervous system. His approach was first taught and practised in the Institute named after him. According to Professor Pető, in addition to damages of the central nervous system, motor disability is chiefly due to the lack of co-operation among different functions. He argued that instead of applying special therapies, these people need to be treated through real education, and thus he created the system of conductive education to prove the idea. Conductive education is based on the idea that despite the damage, the nervous system still possesses the capacity to form new neural connections.
