About the Organisation

Bright Start Children's Centre Portage is a 10-12 week home-based educational programme supporting parents with children (0 – 5 years) with Special educational Needs and or Disabilities (SEND) to further develop their play, communication, relationships, and learning.
We offer one to one support in your home with one of our Portage-trained Outreach Workers.

This includes:
- Developing suitable play activities that you can continue to use with your child in the home;
- Setting small, achievable targets for your child specific to their individual needs;
- Working alongside an assessment tool to monitor your child’s progress and achievements;
- Signposting you to other services available.

Your child’s learning and development is captured through a ‘Learning through Play’ Diary and ACE (Accounting for Lifelong Learning) Toolkit, which focuses on your child's strengths.
Working with other professionals to ensure a joined up approach for you and your child.
