Education, health and care (EHC) plans
If your child’s school or setting is unable to meet their needs through SEN support, they may need more specialist help. This may mean that Worcestershire County Council carries out a needs assessment with your child, called an Education Health and Care Assessment or EHC assessment.

Short break services give disabled children and young people an opportunity to meet new people and enjoy different experiences. Find our more information on short breaks and view our Short Break Statement at Your Life, Your Choice - Short Breaks (opens in a new window).
