Education, health and care (EHC) plans are for children and young people aged up to 25 who need more support than their school or college is normally able to provide.
EHC plans have replaced statements of special educational needs (SEN).
An EHC plan will give a description of your child's special education, health and social care needs. It will also detail the support and provision your child should receive to support their needs and help them succeed.
