"from a Parent's Perspective"
These three words describe our experience with Conductive Learning Center of Greater Cincinnati.
Our story begins in San Antonio, Texas with the birth of our twin daughters, Chloe and Katie in October 2008. Life was wonderful, we always wanted children and were very blessed to have two gorgeous girls. I started suspecting something was wrong when the girls were 2-3 months old. Chloe was not doing things that Katie was. After struggling to be heard and seeing several doctors, someone finally listened. April 2009, Chloe was diagnosed with an abnormal EEG, she was not having seizures, she just had an abnormal EEG. Her MRI was normal and all other tests were coming back normal. June 2009, I was sitting in the doctor’s office with Chloe while Mark & Katie were at home packing to move to Ohio.
There is no way to make Jack’s story short. However, with its length comes a story of a strong little boy, a determined family and a wonderful, life altering school. Thank you for taking the time to read the long, yet still abbreviated, story of our son, Jack.
It was a pregnancy that seemed very uneventful. We had a healthy, beautiful daughter and no reason to think that anything could be wrong. However, within hours of Jack’s birth, we knew something was seriously wrong. At first, he was turning blue for seemingly no reason, but with the color change, accompanying seizures soon followed. The doctors gave us words of encouragement, saying seizures can happen shortly after birth and that medication would get them under control. The doctors were wrong.
To Morgan Lee and her family, the difference between conductive education and some other programs is the difference between a bright future full of independence and just accepting the status quo, between ability and disability; the difference between celebrating her amazing progress and living in a state of confusion and hopelessness.

Connor was a former 24-week preemie, with extensive brain bleeds, hydrocephalus, epilepsy, and right hemi-plegic cerebral palsy. After little progress with “traditional” therapy, we sought other treatments. I couldn’t imagine that 45 minutes a week of physical therapy was going to do much of anything, let alone teach a neurologically impaired child to walk or accomplish activities of daily living.

Our daughter Hannah was diagnosed with spina bifida while still in the womb. We chose to have fetal surgery for her when she was 23 weeks gestation and was born without further complication at 36 weeks gestation. She learned to roll, sit up and crawl not far behind her peers, but standing and walking has been a different story.

Emmett is a beautiful, smart, and sociable young boy. However, the lack of oxygen to his brain around the time of his birth caused problems with the development of the way he uses his muscles. We were told he had cerebral palsy when he was about 3 months old, but knew well before then that he was at risk for having developmental delays. So, his entire life, we have been giving him as many opportunities as we possibly can to give him the best chance of being able to use his body successfully. We have worked with numerous physical, occupational, and speech therapists both at home and away from home - and still do. Read the entire story of Emmett O'Loughlin, as told by his mother, Dara.
