Cornwall Council - Video Interaction Guidance (VIG) Service
Services and organisations that have the Local Offer flash have filled out inclusion information, meaning that they meet the needs of people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND)
VIG is an intervention for parents/carers and their children where there are concerns about the attachment relationship and parents/carers want help to try and improve the relationship between them and their child.
It aims to improve parental sensitivity and attunement through developing an understanding of the communication. It highlights the strengths people already have and supports parents/carers to build on these.
A short clip of video is taken (approximately 10 minutes) of the interaction of those involved. The video is looked at by the VIG guider who will pick out a small number of clips showing positive communication. The VIG guider returns to feedback and discusses the clips with the parent/carer.
