What we do at Rainbow

We inspire and motivate

At The Rainbow Centre we inspire and support children with Cerebral Palsy and adults with a stroke, MS and Parkinson’s disease, adult Cerebral Palsy, Head Injury and their families. Through a system of learning called Conductive Education we encourage and teach our children/participants to take an active role in their own development. Our children/participants learn new ways to become active and happy individuals who are proud of their own achievements and ready for life’s challenges. We focus on what you CAN DO and inspire all children/participants reach their full potential.

I maintained all-fours position with arm-gaiters on and lifted my head up for the length of a song.

 

Wat people say about us

"Since attending Rainbow I am more confident in walking - rarely using my cane nowadays. I know I can slow the progress of PD by using Conductive Education techniques, it promulgates an attitude that you CAN improve your body."

- Pauline - PD Group

"When Blair was a baby doctors held out no hope for him 'He will never be independent or WALK!' Well done Rainbow - We Did It! Blair has such a bright and independent future, I really wish more parents with children with cerebral palsy knew about Rainbow."

- Seymone - Blair's Mum

"Fin has generally changed and developed in every way possible. He is more confident and settled in his groups and the routine of the sessions has helped him be more settled in other situations. His interaction with other and his surroundings have also improved. Fin's physical development has greatly improved in all areas, but most noticeably his willingness to learn and stay motivated."

- Carly Lyons - Fin's Mum
