In addition the following services are also based at the Moor Lane Centre but are not part of the Integrated Service for Children with Disabilities.
Portage (opens a page in the Early Years section on this website) is a home teaching service for pre-school children whose learning and development is significantly delayed. A trained Portage Home Visitor will visit the home on a weekly or fortnightly basis and work alongside parents or carers to provide structured activities that will stimulate their child's development and support early learning. The service also supports children with social communication difficulties or Autism.
Educational Service for Sensory Impairment (ESSI) (opens a page in the Education section on this website) is a small team of specialist teachers qualified to work with children and young people with hearing, vision or multi-sensory losses. We use our specialist knowledge and expertise to support children and young people 0 to 25 years from the point of diagnosis and throughout their education.
Educational Psychology Service (EPS) (opens a page in the Education section on this website) This team does not take any direct referrals from families and operates a consultation model of service delivery whereby schools commission educational psychology involvement.
