If you think your child may have special educational needs or disabilities (SEND) they could be eligible for:
- SEN support
- an Education, Health and Care (EHC) Plan
Most children with SEND will get support through their nursery or school. This is called SEN support.
Some children need more help than this.
If this is the case, an assessment may be required to see if an Education, Health and Care (EHC) plan is needed. An EHC plan is a legal document which sets out exactly what extra support is needed.
It’s important that children with SEND are identified as early as possible so they can start receiving the SEND support they need.
