Here is some information about the Social Communication Pathway that you might find helpful in advance of the session:

The SCP is a multiagency team which assesses social communication difficulties in children and young people. If a child/young person or their family thinks they might be autistic, this team will make an assessment to see if the child or young person meets the criteria for a diagnosis of autism.

Please view the SCP Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page for more information about the Social Communication Pathway/ autism diagnostic pathway in Manchester.
The SCP team recently announced changes to the way they accept referrals to the Social Communication Pathway.
