Additional Needs Team

This is a local authority borough wide service 

The Additional Needs Team provides outreach support and CPD for Primary and High Schools to support the inclusion of pupils with a range of additional needs: cognition and learning; communication difficulties (autistic spectrum disorders); speech, language and communication; physical difficulties and medical conditions. It also includes the Portage service, supporting children with disabilities from birth to three years.

Portage supports the child's learning and development but also supports the family.
