Presentation Transcript


4. The formal objectives for this session: Here’s what I would like to cover today- To provide a reminder of the power of the Portage approach work. To consider some of the wider dimensions of parenting. To introduce the ‘Pillars of Parenting’. To discuss the implications of these wider dimensions of parenting for the Portage model.

5. My personal objectives are that… You find this approach to parenting refreshingly different. You can use it to recognise your strengths as a parent or carer or the strengths of the parents whom you support. You can also use it to consider some possible areas for developing your parenting skills or enabling the parents or carers that you visit to build their parenting skills . You get as much satisfaction from this session as I did when preparing it. And… that you are finding this conference as personally and professionally satisfying as I am!

6. The foundation components of the Portage Early Intervention model (after White, 2007)

8. “Well shoot. I just can’t figure it out. I’m movin’ over 500 doughnuts a day, and I’m still barely squeakin’ by.”

10. Some points to ponder… Children The curriculum needs of children with disability are the same as those without disability Parent(s) and caregiver(s) The needs of parents of young children with disability transcend race, culture, religion, language and all the other socially constructed features that can sometimes divide us. Researchers and evaluators A major focus of research has been the progress of the child (see Marlow et al, 1998) and the satisfaction of the parent(s) (see Clare and Pistang, 1995).
