Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP)

For those that have tried many different support options and adjustments but still need more help, the next step could be to apply for an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP).

Consider asking for an Education, Health and Care (EHC) needs assessment, if your child:

  • has high support needs 
  • has a life-long disability
  • is receiving support from a wide range of services
  • is not making progress even though the support is increasing in type and amount
