About Us

Bristol Portage is the regional home visiting educational service for pre-school children with additional support needs and their families. We talk to parents about their child's development and give ideas for play/teaching activities. We visit weekly. During the first few visits the parent and portage worker look at the child's current skills and level of development and from this starting point long term goals are set.
