At Into Film, we understand that not all Into Film Clubs are alike, and that every learner or club member has different educational needs and requirements. As such, we always try to ensure that we cater for SEND clubs and for those with special educational needs and disabilities.

Film can be a highly effective tool in helping those with SEND to better understand not only curriculum-linked and academic topics, but also the wider world around them. In particular, schools that cater to young people with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) have found that using film as a learning tool can help students that struggle with traditional learning methods and environments can find film a far more accessible route into the curriculum, not only improving attainment, but helping increase confidence and social skills. The Hollies, in Wales, is just one-such school - find out how their journey with film has benfitted their young ASD learners.

As well as watching films for a social or educational purpose, reviewing films - whether in writing, orally or even through pictures and symbols - is often cited by Into Film Club leaders and educators as a particularly strong means of engaging SEND learners and club members, and developing their confidence in sharing their thoughts and feelings. Our collection of SEND-focused resources and related content below can help you to ensure that the power of film reaches all young people, regardless of ability or requirement.

The film suggestions below include visually captivating narratives and fascinating uses of sounds and colour that can be affective and engaging for young audiences with learning disabilities.
