The Portage SEND Best Practice Assessment Checklist is now available to buy.
The National Portage Association is proud to be working in partnership with Kent County Council in producing the Portage Best Practice Assessment Checklist and Development Profile. It brings together all of the developmental steps for children from birth to five years from various documents including the original Portage checklist and the Early Years Foundation Stage. The skills are broken down in to small steps so that parents and practitioners can assess and celebrate every skill that the child has achieved. It can then act as a guide to the design of teaching activities to further promote development.
The checklist package can be used by Portage services countrywide, Early Years settings/providers, SEND schools and settings and schools with SEND primary elements. It will be an invaluable tool for all parents and practitioners who want to enhance the development of children, particularly those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.
