Changes have been introduced to the ways that children and young people age 0-25 with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities are assessed and supported, to enable them to achieve the best possible outcomes in their lives. Over the next few years, holistic Education, Health & Care (EHC) Plans will be replacing both SEN Statements and Learning Difficulty Assessments (LDAs).
InterAct is part of the local partnership (Independent Support Essex), which provides Independent Supporters to work directly with young people and the parents of children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities, offering them information and support throughout the assessment and planning process for an EHC Plan.
- Children/young people needing new assessments and EHC plans
- Children with an SEN Statement converting to an EHC plan
- Young people with an LDA converting to an EHC plan
- Young people who are leaving school and who would have had an LDA under the old system
The level and nature of support provided will be tailored to individual needs
