The Rainbow Road School Programme

The Rainbow Road  Programme is a treasury of 220 targeted activity Cards to develop student’s development of 22 Foundational skills including Sensory Motor, Fine Motor, Visual Perceptual, and Memory areas.


Written by a Paediatric Occupational Therapist with over 25 years of experience, each activity is tried and tested. Activities are designed with purposeful play and therapeutic value as key features.  Efficient documentation systems support the implementation of the programme, whether with individuals or in small groups.  The programme is also ideal for using across whole year levels in the early years.


The 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 the fourth edition 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.
