🟢What is an Education, Health and Care Plan and does my child need one?📄
🟢An Education, Health and Care plan (“EHC plan”) is a legal document which describes a child or young person’s special educational needs, the support they need, and the outcomes they would like to achieve.
🟢The special educational provision described in an EHC plan must be provided by the child or young person’s local authority (“LA”). This means an EHC plan can give a child or young person extra educational support. It can also give parents and young people more choice about which school or other setting the child or young person can attend.
🟢Our webinar explains what support should look like for pupils with SEND before applying for an EHCP. It also provides an introduction to making an EHC application and what to consider, find it here.👉
