Portage provides an early intervention home learning service for pre-school aged children with additional needs and/or disabilities and their families. The team are highly skilled, experienced professionals who work with families to support children’s play and development. Portage is based on three key principles: child led play, family focused approach, and structured teaching. The Specialist Support workers work in partnership with parents and other professionals to plan realistic goals, using a step-by-step approach for the children, based on their individual needs. The service supports people with autism, communication impairments, learning disabilities, and physical disabilities.
