Experiences of Education, Health and Care plans

News - 03 Apr 2017

A research report based on a survey of parents and young people's experiences of Education, Health and Care plans has been released.

The Department for Education commissioned a survey of parents and young people with an EHC plan in order to build a representative national picture of how parents and young people in England were experiencing the EHC needs assessment and planning process and the resultant EHC plans.
Almost three quarters of the respondents agreed that the EHC plan led to the child or young person getting the help and support that they need. The full report can be found here.
