The purpose of the unique Pető method is to provide assistance to children and young adults with motor disabilities originating from the damage to the central nervous system.
A standout feature of the conductor BA program at the András Pető Faculty is its emphasis on practical training, which accounts for 43% of the total education hours. This places the program among the best in Europe, if not the world, as compared to other special education and teacher training programs where practical training typically constitutes less than 20% or 10% respectively.
The curriculum covers various essential subjects, including education history, education science, special education, neuro-system and musculoskeletal system anatomy, general psychology, developmental psychology, neuro psychology, and conductive education. Graduates of the program have opportunities to work in conductor teams or multi-professional teams within education, rehabilitation, or health institutions.
Since its inception, over 2000 students, both domestic and international, have successfully completed the training. The András Pető Faculty also provides services based on the unique Pető method, which aims to empower individuals in adapting and integrating into their daily lives. Through intensive individual and group sessions, clients are trained to overcome challenges ranging from basic tasks like shoe lacing to more complex activities such as using cutlery or independent movement forms.
