Statements of SEN are being replaced with a jointly assessed Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), which can cover children and young people from birth up to the age of 25.
Joint assessment will help parents and young people to ‘tell their story’ only once and will focus on the outcomes that children and young people can achieve as well as identifying the support needed to do this.
The Children and Families Act puts families at the centre of the assessment and planning process so that outcomes are co-produced with families or with young people themselves. A helpful guide to the impact of the new legislation has been produced by the government and is available on the website.
