I need support with an education health care plan (EHC

Schools, settings, parents or young people can request an education health care plan (EHC).

Parents and young people can decide to request an EHC plan independently.

Schools and settings must have parental consent in order to apply.

How to get support with an EHC plan

If parents or young people feel that requesting an EHC plan would be beneficial it is always best to work in partnership with the special educational needs co-ordinator (SENCO) at the school or setting to make the request.

However, if this is not possible parents and young people can contact the Special Education Needs Team directly to make a request. View the SEN contact details on the Early Help Directory.

You do not need an EHC plan or an occupational therapy referral to access support from the sensory processing pathway.  Find out how to get support for sensory processing difficulties.
