Education support

3. Portage Service (home visiting service for children 0- 5 years old )


Portage is an Early Educational Programme supporting families with a young child who has a significant developmental delay and/or special need within their home environment

This includes:

  • A developmental assessment of a child’s current and emerging skills
  • The Programme will identify and work towards achieving long term goals to support a child’s development
  • A small step approach to learning through play
  • Working in partnership with Parents/Carers
  • Regular visits to a child’s home
  • Joint working with other agencies and therapists

The emphasis is on celebrating success. In between visits the parent/carer is expected to practice the activities with their children.  The Portage Worker will complete regular assessments, attend professional meetings and complete written reports as appropriate.
