SEND and EHC Plans - Advice for Parents and Carers

SEND and EHC Plans : What you need to know 

In our first joint webinar with SL Therapy, Amara and Sarah focus on SEND support for your child. Using a case study as a real-life example and bringing together legal and clinical experience, the webinar will cover the key areas of:

•    The basics of special educational needs and disability (SEND).
•    SEND law, processes and procedures – how to get an EHC plan for your child.

Aimed at parents of children with SEND, the webinar will enable you to:

•    Understand SEND law and statutory guidance.
•    Understand the education, health and care assessment and planning procedure.
•    Understand the duties of the school and the local authority to pupils with SEND.

We share top tips and strategies to help you navigate common pitfalls. This webinar will help you to work collaboratively with your school, the local authority and the clinical commissioning group and secure an EHC Plan for your child.
