Together achieving better decisions and brighter futures for Manchester families of children and young people aged 0-25 with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)

BECOME A MEMBER

The Social Communication Pathway (SCP) is the local autism assessment service in Manchester. The SCP team is a multi-agency team which assesses social communication difficulties in children and young people living in Manchester. If a young person or their family thinks they might be autistic, this team will make an assessment to see if they meet the criteria for a diagnosis of Autism.

You can read more about the SCP on the University of Manchester NHS Foundation Trust’s (MFT) website.

There is also a new Social Communication Pathway for Early Years children (i.e., those aged 5 years or younger) currently being piloted in South Manchester. You can read about that here: http://manchesterparentcarerforum.org.uk/the-early-years-social-communication-pathway/
