SEND Video Resources

Below you will find video resources for our parent programmes as well as links to video resources from other key services. These are for you to watch in your own time, at your own pace, as many times as is helpful and supportive for you. You can also share these with family and care providers to help them in understanding and supporting you and your family.

Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) and Social Communication Differences (SCD) - The Primary Age

We will be hosting optional LIVE follow up Question and Answer sessions, where a range of professionals will be available to offer support and advice. As the Q&As are linked to the topics in the videos, we would recommend that you watch the video sessions first, then follow the link to book the Q&A session if you would like to. These sessions will be delivered through Microsoft Teams and our 'ASC and SCD - The Primary Age' (DOCX, 691KB) poster has all of the dates for these as well.

When booking a space on one of the Q&A sessions, please include your child's name and school. Our Q and A sessions are for Milton Keynes parents only.

Please note: Timings are given to support you in finding the best time for you to access the videos, however they are approximate and may be slightly longer or shorter.
