The process of support for children and young people who have special educational needs and disabilities

Introduction

When a request for an Education, Health and Care needs assessment is received, the local authority must consider the information carefully and make their decision according to the legislation.

An Education, Health and Care needs assessment may be required for children and young people with SEND aged 0 to 25 if the following apply.

The child or young person:

  • Has severe and/or complex long-term needs
  • Requires provision and resources which are above those ordinarily available in their educational setting
  • Requires intensive and longer-term help and support from more than one agency
  • Is making limited or no educational progress, despite evidence of high levels of support and purposeful interventions
