im a bit of a man when it comes to colds, i don't realy know alot about portage so i don't know what to expect. Dd1 is on top form this morning and has decided she wants to comunicate through picture cards for the first time ever grin

our portage lady was fab - just like a private toy library for dd1. Each week she'd bring a range of stuff to get dd1 interested in, form arts and crafts to musical toys, to threading beads etc.

Depending on what we thought dd1 needed to work on (fine motor skills, listening skills, etc) she adapted what she brought.

If anything took dd1's fancy, we could usually hang on to it for a couple of weeks.

She was also helpful with DLA forms and stuff, and the best child centred meeting we had were arranged by portage - they got everyone involved with dd1 together (and us) so that we could all talk about where to go - none of this letters being sent and waiting 2 months for a reply.

hope you have a good morning
