Videos that help explain SEND

We’ve found some examples of videos that help explain how we are all different.  They are all very different and some use different terms and explanations so we suggest you preview them first to check they suit your choice of words and explanation.  We found these by googling – there are so many on the internet so if there isn’t something here to suit, try having a look to see what’s available. We will be adding new content as we find new videos  – let us know if you have recommendations to share
