Under 3’s

IMG_0053The Rainbow Centre’s Early Intervention Group has places available as our 3 year olds have moved up to our Nursery Group; we also have places in our Saturday Club for children who are attending their main school during the week.

The children’s sessions improve the quality of life for children with Cerebral Palsy, developmental delays  and motor learning difficulties through Conductive Education working in partnership with the whole family.

Early intervention is vital as children develop and progress much more quickly in the early years. We deliver Conductive Education to all young children who might benefit from it, accompanied by one parent. Following an assessment, staff and parents discuss and then choose, from a range of sessions, the most beneficial service for the child according to age, ability and the family’s circumstances. These sessions are:

  • Individual Sessions
  • Preparation for Parent and Child Group
  • Parent and Child

Individual Sessions

Babies and some children will benefit from individually tailored sessions.  Here children work towards appropriate goals during the sessions accompanied by their parent or carer.

Aims

  • Create a happy and secure environment for the children and parents in order that they enjoy learning.
  • Help families understand their child’s particular needs and assist bonding.
  • Develop and promote independence, social and daily living skills.
  • Advise parents of appropriate techniques, games and toys to encourage the development of social and play skills.
  • Provide an opportunity for children and parents to learn the main principles of CE on a one-to-one basis with a Conductor-Teacher in preparation for moving into a group environment for the next stage of their child’s development.
  • Liaise with professionals.

Attendance

Children can attend on a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis for a one hour session.  Days and times are agreed during the assessment

Preparation for Parent and Child Group

A one hour long session with prepares children for a smooth transition into the Parent and Child Group.  This preparation group enables parents/carers/families to gain basic knowledge of CE and work harmoniously with their children toward their individual goals accompanied by a maximum of two peers within the group.

The group is supported by two qualified Conductor-Teachers.

Parent and Child Group

The Parent and Child service offers placement for children aged from 1-3 years together with their parents/carers/families.  This service enables parents/carers/family members to gain a greater understanding of how motor disorder affects their child and helps them encourage their child to achieve greater independence with the leadership and advice of one Conductor-Teacher in the group.

All aspects of the child’s development are addressed.  Planning and recording of progress are guided by the principles of CE combined with the Early Years Foundation Stage.
