Making an Education, Health and Care Plan Assessment Request
Wed 18 October 2017, 12:00 – 14:00 BST
An Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) is the document which replaces Statements of SEN and Learning Difficulties Assessments for children and young people with special educational needs.
If your child has not made expected progress, despite the school or pre-school taking action to meet the needs of your child, you or the school can request an education, health and care needs assessment.
This workshop led by Independent Support Co-ordinator Karen Caldbeck, will help you understand the paperwork, how to apply for an EHCP, and what the process involves. You will learn useful tips on what information and evidence you need to gather to make a good assessment request.
The workshop will also explore one-page profiles, a person-centred thinking tool that provides a way to capture who your child is and how best to support them.
