Rainbow Road  4th Edition

Rainbow Road Programme has been created to help children aged from 4 to 12 years of age with specific learning difficulties.  It was created out of the growing demand for school based Therapy programmes, due to the shortage of Occupational Therapists.

The Programme is centered on a set of colourful cards, each with a single activity or task to be performed. The cards are grouped into various skill groups and reflect the seven colours of the rainbow.

Optimally, the Programme has been designed to be used in collaboration with an Occupational Therapist, who can provide specific assessment to determine which skill areas would be relevant to the child. These skills are given simple codes that relate to the Rainbow Road cards and are recorded on the progress sheet. From there the Learning support Teacher or Teacher’s  assistants can quickly devise an individual programme for that student.

New in 2015 is the Teacher’s Observation Guide to Skill Selection. (TOGS). This observation based Teacher Questionnaire allows Teachers and support Staff to identify possible areas of delay across the 22 Skill Areas within the programme. Once these skill weaknesses have been identified they are prioritised and the relevant sections of the programme can be accessed for that Student’s specific profile.
