Conductive Education has been characterised by some disabled academics as an intervention that is oppressive to disabled people. One of the most notable of these is Oliver. This paper describes the practice of Conductive Education and its development in the United Kingdom and explores why it came to be perceived by some from within the disabled people's movement as contrary to their interests. Oliver's position on Conductive Education is critiqued and located within the wider debate on the adequacy of the social model of disablement.
