Live Music Now has made a short film which provides insight into delivering music sessions for young people with Autistic Spectrum Disorder.  The film was created as part of a Youth Music funded project in which 4 pairs of early career musicians from Live Music Now delivered a year-long residency in four specialist autism schools in London.  The musicians were supported during the project by school staff and mentors Professor Adam Ockelford and Graham Dowdall.  The film captures some of the musicians' learning, focusing on particular elements which they felt were important for planning music sessions in this type of setting.

This discussion group has been set up as an online space for all things related to music-making, special edcuational needs and disabilities. There is a wealth of great practice from all around the country represented on the Youth Music Network, and it is intended that this group should provide a virtual connection to close some of the geographical gaps. If you are new to the group, please feel free to post and let everyone know a little a bit about yourself and what you do!
