About CECMD

Let me tell you how Conductive Education Center of Metro Detroit came to be what it is today. The founding parents of CECMD began this process in June of 1999, after participating in a 5 week research study at Oakland University. 

The parents found that each of their children benefited greatly from this type of therapy. Something they hadn’t seen before. It was at that point that they decided they could not abandon the concept of Conductive Education. They refused to let the medical insurance companies dictate the amount of therapy their children would receive. 

How does the CE program differ from that of typical therapies?

For those that are new to the term ‘Conductor’, the explanation is simple: they are specially trained and licensed teachers. They are trained in OT, PT and Speech. The conductor carries out the principles of the CE program. It links speech, thought and movement together for the child—allowing them to focus and internalize movement.

Where is our center today? Since 1999, CECMD has been operating out of the Utica School District. However, 43341 Schoenherr Rd, Sterling Heights, Michigan, 48313, is now the place that we call “home”. The staff is welcoming and warm, the location is perfect, and the open arms are inspiring.

We offer yearly summer boot camps that run from the end of June, until the end of August. Our summer program runs Monday through Friday, for 6 hours per day. Our program helps the children with their fine & gross motor skills, standing, sitting, and just learning independent skills, such as self- feeding and personal care. 

We appreciate all  the support received by family, friends and the community since day one. On behalf of CECMD and the kids, we would like to thank you for your interest in our organization.
