We invite you to get acquainted with the results of the pilot project “Portage” on the basis of the “City Psychological and Pedagogical Center of the Department of Education and Science of the City of Moscow” for children with severe and multiple developmental disorders!
From November 2022 to May 2023 inclusive, 3 pilot teams of specialists were formed at the Center and a pilot project for working with children using the Portage method was successfully carried out.
During their participation in the project, specialists who received a certificate at a basic seminar on the Portage method in Moscow in 2021 were able to master the use of a unique method of work, accompanied by a supervisor from Moscow.
Children with severe and multiple developmental disorders in Moscow and their families took part in the project.
The Portage method is an accurate, simple, universal technology for individual work with children, which allows teaching vital skills to children with the most severe and multiple developmental disorders (SMND).
This pedagogical model allows you to work in a variety of conditions – with family children and orphans; with different nature and degree of health disorders, including severe and multiple developmental disorders; with children of various ages. Classes can be conducted by specialists of various specialties and student volunteers, they can be held at home, in educational organizations, in orphanages and other institutions. Despite the simplicity of the method, such work significantly expands the capabilities of the early intervention system and allows you to achieve results even in cases that seem particularly difficult. “Portage” has been used around the world since the 70s of the 20th century. In Russia Since 2008, Russian organizations have been successfully using the methodology, and the Portage methodological materials have formed the basis of the early intervention system. In 2021, the Association of Portage Specialists in Russia was registered.
In 5 Federal Districts of Russia, with the support of the Diema’s Dream Charitable Foundation, 55 Portage teams have been formed and there is a unique experience in applying the methodology in working with children with severe disorders of psychophysical development, who were considered “unpromising” and “unteachable”.
Thanks to the activities, these children, previously considered “hopeless and unpromising”, learned to wash and dress, drink and eat, sit, stand and walk, assemble construction sets, draw and cut, distinguish colors, recognize objects, count, look at books, and mastered many other things. motor and cognitive skills, self-service skills.
