Special Education Needs
Rainbow School teaches children and young people aged 4 to 19 years with autism and related communication disorders. We’re an independent, non-profit day school, registered with the Department of Education as an Approved Independent Special Needs School. Rainbow School has two sites (primary and secondary) in Wandsworth, South West London. However, we take pupils from all over the city.

Teaching with ABA/VB reduces challenging behaviour and helps pupils to build on their social, play and independence skills read more at www.rainbowschool.org.uk/sen-report
