Birth to five years.
|Early Years Education Settings|
|ECH Needs Assessment||
A new assessment for disabled children and young people to help decide what services and support they need.
|Education Funding Agency (EFA)||
Decides how schools and colleges get their money.
A new document that will set out what support disabled children and young people should get in school. This will replace a ‘statement’ and will follow the child or young person from the point of issue until 25 years of age, unless the young person no longer continues in education.
One of the biggest changes is the involvement from the start of the parent carer, and if suitable, the young person themselves. In the new Plan, an “All About Me” fact sheet about the needs, wants, aspirations of the young person will have to be included. In fact, once the young person reaches 16, they can become the author of their own Plan and make decisions on where they wish to be educated and what course they would prefer.
A professional employed by the local authority to assess a child’s Special Educational Needs and to give advice to schools and settings as to how the child’s needs can be met.
