- Making decisions about your special educational needs and disability support
Under a new law introduced by the government, you and your family will be able to have more say in the way you receive support. This support will be written in an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan, which will focus on what a child or young person* wants to achieve and what support they need to do this. Right from the beginning, the views, wishes and feelings of the child or young person and their family will be at the centre of the EHC plan. Easy Read Education Health Care Plans
- Local Offer information for Children and Young People
A Local Offer gives children and young people with special educational needs or disabilities and their families information about what support services the local authority think will be available in their local area. Every local authority is responsible for writing a Local Offer and making sure it is available for everyone to see.
