Conductive Education—Task Series
A task series is regarded as a facilitation technique that teaches children/adults to gain control over their movements and also allows them to learn new movements. This results in their improved function in the daily activities of the program. Every child will have several "task series" that are addressed throughout the program (Bourke-Taylor, O'Shea, Gaebler, 2007).
For example, when a child/adult is experiencing difficulty achieving elbow extension when reaching out for objects, task series will be designed specifically for them. One of their task series will be designed to include many opportunities to practice elbow extension during various activities and postures that the child/adult engages in on daily basis. More specifically, the client may place hands down by his/her side while working on a seated activity at a table, and down by their side holding on to rings while lying supine (Bourke-Taylor, O'Shea, Gaebler, 2007).
