The Movement Centre has not only motivated our son with a weekly session but motivates the whole family with unique activities we would never think of on our own to support his development. He pushes himself harder during his session then at any other time, and we can’t believe the strides he’s made with his affected side. We are extremely grateful for the services we receive.

The MCMI Conductive Education Program is responsible for teaching my daughter how to walk again. The excellent staff are like family, teaching her all aspects of independent life skills. She looks forward to going every week.

Conductive Education is fantastic. The staff at MCMI is awesome and very caring.
- Kim Bell (September, 2014)
Excellent staff. They are all very friendly and very knowledgeable. They treat clients with respect and make them feel part of a “family”. They look forward to going every week.

My child would not have the life he does without this wonderful centre and the committed staff. Instead of limitations they gave us hope and help.

The best place for making a difference in our son’s life.

The Movement Centre has allowed Stephanie to move forward and therefore is giving her the opportunity in life to function at a higher level and enjoy every day more.  The progress I see in her and the other children is amazing.  They are all individuals who, with the help of The Movement Centre will develop to their greatest potential.  The difference that this will make in Stephanie’s life, as well as the other children, is priceless.  We are extremely fortunate to have this program available to us.

Our daughter Olivia has been going to The Movement Centre since 2007. Olivia had a stroke before she was born which significantly affected her mobility, gross and fine motor skills, as well as caused a severe visual impairment. At The Movement Centre, Olivia gets a type of holistic therapy which addresses all her concerns – she is gaining new confidence as she develops new skills – walking, balance, orienting in the world, making new friends and having fun. The Movement Centre is important to Olivia and our family because the “system” can’t provide everything and we want to give Olivia every opportunity to develop her potential.

It’s not hard to talk positively about the Movement Centre! I do it all the time to anyone that I feel would benefit from it, whether directly or indirectly!  Until Kristen started in the fall of 2007, I really felt that we were at a standstill; that we had gone as far as we would with Kristen. After meeting Gemma and seeing what Kristen could do, I felt something that I thought I had lost forever – HOPE.  We have gone on quite a journey since Kristen’s first class at The Movement Centre. I don’t know who has grown more, her or I. I think that we have grown together. She has come such a long way. From birth the doctors had no hope she would survive, to the 5 year old who is walking and trying so hard to communicate. She is the bravest kid and I am proud to have the privilege to be her mom.  Thank you to all the people at The Movement Centre who strive to get the most out of our kids, day in and day out.

I thoroughly enjoyed my time at fall session and believe that it did me tremendous good. All winter long, my friends down in Arizona have remarked about how much better I have been walking. I originally signed up for the program because I had a number of falls (7) the previous two years and had lost my confidence in walking. Haven taken the fall session not only have I regained my ability and confidence in walking; I have learned to slow down many aspects of my life. Since I am now very comfortable with where I am I think the space in the spring session could be better used by someone else.

Since coming to The Movement Centre, our little boy has astonished everyone!
- Don & Cindy Ramage
Since my son’s enrollment in 2005, his motor skills, confidence, and awareness has improved tremendously. Within a few weeks from starting the program, my son went from drinking out of a bottle to using a straw. For my 4 year old son and his father, this was tremendous! Out of all the resources made available for our family, The Movement Centre has shown the most results in regards to physical therapies.

Within 2 classes the difference in my son was incredible. He was holding himself up more on his own. We can sit him on the couch without him falling off or falling over. He likes to walk (assisted) and ride his bike. He has become a lot stronger since entering The Movement Centre classes.

Bryce has attended many camps with The Movement Centre. What he enjoys the most is feeling successful. He has learned that he CAN get his body to do many things. He is an equal participant and his peers motivate him. We are very proud of him!

I became a supporter of Conductive Education when one of my clients came into my clinic, after attending an intensive session at The Movement Centre saying “I Can Do It!”

“Thumbs up for Movement Centre of Manitoba”
We just returned from doing a 4 week CE Camp with the Movement Centre of Manitoba in Canada. The program was really well run and we were impressed with the dedication and knowledge of the staff. My daughter showed some great improvements and now at age 9, we can truly say she is toilet trained! I would highly recommend attending this centre. My daughter’s teachers and TA’s are amazed at how much progress has been achieved in such a short period of time. There is nothing quite like the feeling of watching a wheelchair bound child stand up and walk with a walker after 4 weeks of Conductive Education. Well Done!

  • Went from danger of aspirating liquids to drinking from a straw/syringe/cup (by mouth)
  • Improved toileting (does not depend on diapers at Conductive Education)
  • Better sitting and head control
  • Loves social aspect

Staff are young, energetic, caring and compassionate

We heard about the Centre through word-of-mouth and decided to do a trial session to see how it would work out. By the end of the trial, our son was walking better, his balance had improved, he was helping to feed himself, plus his motivation to want to do things himself has gone from 0 to 100! So we have since been attending the Centre regularly for classes once a week. He is a completely different child now, and I truly believe the sky’s the limit!
