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

" My first visit to the Rainbow Centre we experienced a smile and welcome; this applied to every member of staff from the office to the service - very nice positive people.
My shoulder pain has almost gone, sleeping better, signs that my arm is awakening. There is a long haul ahead but I AM optimistic of some degree of recovery. "

- John - Stroke Group

"Where do I begin? What The Rainbow Centre gives Felix is huge. He enjoys attending and tells me about his day and the other children. The routine and physical activities have undoubtedly had a huge impact on his development this year.
Felix's speech has improved masses - he works really hard to make the correct sounds and is willing and keen to learn. His high kneeling, sit to stand transfers and independent rolling have improved hugely. He is consistently trying to use his left hand much more now for a whole range of activities.
Communication has been the biggest leap for us as a family, his brother can now play and interact much more easily."

- Alice Snell - Mum

"Attending the CE sessions improved my motivation both physically and mentally. It is showing me what is possible with a restricted movement pattern. Confidence building and stimulation of the body and mind."
