Specialist SEND Teacher support for Families

 

Our Specialist Teacher has experience of the systems around your child, both as a Teacher and SENCO, and as a Parent. We can support you to navigate the process of deciding on whether your child needs an EHCP (Education Health and Care Plan), applying for an assessment, and making sure your child’s EHCP reflects their needs and strengths
 
Not sure what and EHCP is and whether it’s something you want to consider? Here’s our blog to get you started.

Becca - Our Specialist SEND Teacher

Initial discussion – up to 30 minutes FREE

A free call with our Specialist SEND Teacher to gather information and help you decide if an EHCP is the appropriate next step for your child. This is a no obligation call and you do not have to go on to take up any services with us, though we can discuss these if you would like us to.  

Requesting an EHCP needs assessment  

£390



We will work together to create a thorough, detailed and evidenced request to the local authority (LA) for an Education Health Care Needs Assessment (EHCNA) or ‘Family Conversation’. This will increase the likelihood of the request being successful and a full needs assessment taking place.

 

This will include:

·      Meeting with parents / carers to gather information

·      Requesting and including school/setting based information and information from health and any other services

·      Submitting a completed and quality checked by you Family Conversation

·      Current provision map (a thorough overview of the interventions and provisions your child already accesses), and future planning of what else is needed to better support your child’s needs.

Reviewing a Draft EHCP following a Needs assessment 


It’s essential that your child’s EHCP adequately describe their needs and provision so that they receive what they need and so that school/setting can see their needs reflected in their funding.
