Education Health and Care Plans (EHCP)
This page includes content about EHCP’s for professionals.
An education, health and care (EHC) plan is for children and young people aged up to 25 who need more support than is available through special educational needs support.
EHC plans identify educational, health and social needs and set out the additional support to meet those needs.
Health professionals are under a statutory duty to support the EHCP process and this includes involvement in annual reviews.
