Pre-school group for children with complex needs (Portage)

The group is for families of children aged 2 to 3 years, who are experiencing challenges interacting and communicating with others.

The group provides opportunities for children to develop early communication and social interaction skills through sensory and fun play experiences. It also allows parents and carers to meet other families in a supportive group.

    To attend the group you must be working with the Portage Service  If your child is showing delay in more than one area of their development, you can refer yourself by completing the form below:

    Or call 03000 263 350 and they will complete the form with you.
