The Portage Service is part of the Engagement and Learning Team and provides input for children aged 0-4 years (discharge term after they turn 3) who have Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
Portage is a step by step teaching approach which is used as part of a home visiting service. The Portage Home Visitors provide support and advice to enable parents to help their children to engage in play based activities and to make progress.
If children receiving Portage attend a setting, then Portage staff will work with the setting, providing advice and guidance on how to best meet individual children’s needs.
Families receiving Portage can also meet together at Portage family groups or receive support to access community/leisure activities.
