What is an Education, Health and Care plan?
Who needs an EHC plan?
EHC plans are for children and young people whose special educational needs require more help than would normally be provided in a mainstream education setting (a college, school, nursery). Although the plan can include health or social care needs, your child will not get a plan if they only have health or social care needs that do not affect their education.
How do I get an Education, Health and care plan?
EHC plans are drawn up by the local authority after an EHC needs assessment. You, your child’s education setting or your child, if over 16, can ask your local authority to carry out an assessment. Find out more about EHC needs assessments here.
