A CENTRE for children with cerebral palsy is organising a national conference on its inspirational teaching methods.

The Rainbow Centre, based in Fareham, has been asked to put together the sixth UK conference of the Conductive Education Professional Education Group.

The annual event, taking place in Southampton on Saturday, will bring together 180 delegates from across the UK with an interest in conductive education, including physiotherapists, occupational therapists and teachers.

Ian Piper, chief executive at the charity, said: ‘It is a great privilege for The Rainbow Centre to be asked to arrange the conference and is a sign of the high regard in which the centre and its conductors are held within the world of conductive education.’

Magdi Kovacs, director of services at the centre, added: ‘Conductive education makes such a profound difference to the lives of children and adults and their families. The annual conference will be one of the highlights for us as the Rainbow Centre celebrates its 21st year of service in 2011.’
