A CHARITY has received international recognition for its work with children with cerebral palsy.

Magdi Kovacs, service director at the Rainbow Centre in Fareham, gave a presentation on the charity’s work at the first conductive education conference in Jordan.

The Rainbow Centre offers rehabilitation for children and adults with cerebral palsy 
and other neurological conditions called conductive education.

Magdi said: ‘I was thrilled to be given this opportunity to share the Rainbow Centre experience and to tell them about our excellent services.

‘I’m excited to be a part of an initiative which will enable families in Jordan to benefit from conductive education.

‘I’ve witnessed a very positive, receptive attitude from all the health professionals towards it, which gives a solid foundation for setting up conductive education services in the country.’

Also speaking at the conference were professionals from the Peto Institute in Hungary, the birthplace of conductive education.
