In one of the postings that I wrote yesterday I congratulated Gábor Fellner. I had received a Google alert telling me that he had written an e-book. I noticed that Andrew Sutton had also picked up on this on his Facebook page.
Yesterday I soon realised that the link was not the official location for this " book" and that the material in question was already up on the Paces website, the link to which I put in yesterday's posting instead of the "unofficial location:
Today I received another Google alert about www.khuf.com. This is a search engine that has thousands of PDF files in its "collection". Apparently there are several about CE, which is why I receive the alerts to them.
This article had no name of author, so I sent it on to Andrew Sutton suspecting that he would know! From looking at the timing of his Facebook snippets I think that he was on to the rest of the story before me, probably before I was even awake! You can read about what he found out at:
I am sorry for the misleading information on my blog, but I am not sorry that the material that Gábor has written has found its way to me. I enjoyed reading it and have sent the link on to several other people. I found it to be comprehensive and hope that it will be particularly helpful to some families that I know who are just learning about conductive living.
Google alerts and what to do with them
Well I shall read them all from now on, and read them very carefully!
I have received another today. It is a link to yet another newspaper article describing yet another family's quest to raise money to take a child for treatment abroad.
Not conductive this time, not a trip to Hungary
I have been googling "selective dorsal rhizotomy" for the past hour or so and most of the newspaper headlines I found talk about a life changing operation in America.
I have been reading about the operation, about the positives and the negatives, and about some of the families who have travelled to St Louis with their children. I have noticed in photographs and video links that some of the children have been in conductive groups before and after this operation. I found no mention here, however, of Conductive Education.
Is there anyone outthere, conductors, clients, families, who can write here on my blog about their personal experiences of a selective dorsal rhizotomy operation?
I have never met a client who is considering undergoing the operation or who has undergone it.
I hope to learn more from my readers. I look forward to hearing from you.
