From September 2014 Statements of Special Educational Needs and Learning Difficulty Assessments were replaced by Education, Health and Care (EHC) plans.
Education, Health and Care plans (EHC Plan) set out what a child or young person with additional needs wants to achieve (educational, health, and life goals) and what support they need to reach their goals.
You must be in education to have an EHC plan.
Crucial: Usually it will be the school or learning provider applying for the EHC, but families can also make an application. Find out about applying for an Education, Health and Care Plan assessment in Oxfordshire.
