🟢 Does your child or young person come home from school feeling distressed and overwhelmed? however school are not seeing the same behaviours and report that your child is doing “fine” and they have no concerns. If this sounds familiar to your situation, your child maybe masking their needs in school.
🟢We have a factsheet on our website that has information and strategies to support your child.

❗❗Does your child or young person have an EHC Plan (educational,health and care plan) and would you like further information on what the content of an EHC Plan should look like?❗❗

🟢We often get requests from parents and carers to check their child’s EHCP and How detailed does their EHC Plan have to be?
🟢Education, Health and Care Plans don’t have a prescribed “look”, but they legally must contain certain sections and content.
Read more details about what each of these sections are and what they should contain in our “Content of an EHC plan ” resource page.Find it here:👇https://westberkssendiass.info/content-of-an-ehc-plan/
🟢The EHCP must describe the needs and support your child must receive in enough detail so that the reader can clearly tell what must be delivered, how often, how long for, and by whom. This detail is referred to as specificity.
👉Does Section B list all of your child’s needs?
👉Does Section F list specific provisions for each individual need in Section B?
👉Are the outcomes in Section E up-to-date and appropriate?
Watch out for woolly phrases such as:
“access to”, “opportunities for”, “input from”, “may benefit from” etc.
