Many years ago, before I really knew what I was doing with videos (and before I was lucky enough to be gifted with an I-Mac), I put together a compilation of the every day things families of children with disabilities go through. The every day things which may be in one set of case notes but not another, or more likely not in any notes, the every day things parents tend to tell each other but not providers.
The idea was to produce a video which shared with practitioners the things they need to think about before meeting a family.
Like I said, this was my very first video so I apologise for the speed (I hadn’t learned how to slow things down).
However, the message is still the same and this video has been used extensively by many people (from the UK to Australia) to help put the parents’ perspective over to practitioners and as of Sept 2014 had over 16K views on YouTube.
I would love to hear your comments, as I am constantly updating this to deliver to workshops. What other examples should be in there?

my goodness that video is so powerful – I am going to email the link to the SEN team to see before the complex case panel for my son next week. xxx
