Changing the lives of children with disabilities.
At Rainbow House we believe that every child or young person has the right to access opportunities to meet their full potential. That’s why everything we do is focussed on ‘changing the lives of children and young people with disabilities and brain injury; equipping them with the vital skills they require to live more independent lives. Creating a positive, responsive and supportive learning environment which is respectful of the diverse needs of disabled children, young people, adults and their families, carers and the local community; enabling families to pursue ordinary lives and see their children achieve their full potential.
Everyone who comes to Rainbow House is encouraged to experience what other children, young people and adults experience, if its deemed out of their reach, we believe that they should have a go.
We challenge them to overcome physical restrictions, to dream and have raised aspirations, as their desire to achieve can be what stands between a life of independence and a life of dependency.
Disability isn’t only about the ability to move independently, its their ability to have greater freedom to think independently, make informed choices and have opportunity to experience all that life has to offer.

Conductive Education is a form of special education and rehabilitation for children and adults with neurological conditions (primarily resulting in physical disability such as Cerebral Palsy, Acquired Brain Injury, Stroke etc...) At Rainbow House we have also found that Conductive Education can sometimes be of benefit to individuals with global development delay, genetic conditions and other diagnosed and undiagnosed physical disabilities. As the name suggests , it is an educational approach. It aims to help children and adults to learn to overcome problems of movement as a way of enabling them to live more active and independent lives.
How we provide Conductive Education at Rainbow House:
At Rainbow House we provide sessional CE on a weekly basis. Sessions are usually once or twice a week for between 1 and 3 hours. CE sessions are usually run in groups to promote social skills and independent learning. The group setting also encourages positive feedback from peers.
We offer services for the following age groups:
- Parent and Child (up to 4 years)
- Early Years (3-5 years)
- Primary and Secondary School age (5-10 yrs & 11-16 yrs

The sessions are lead by Conductors (CE Practitioners) and CE assistants who facilitate the children during their session and with the additional support of a Physiotherapist.
