St Helens Council is undertaking a consultation on the Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) process and wants to hear from children and young people, their parents and professionals.
EHCPs are statutory documents drawn up for children and young people who have complex Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND).
EHCPs identify educational, health and social needs of an individual young person and set out the additional support required to meet those needs.
Young people, parents and professionals who have received an EHCP can go online and fill in a short questionnaire concerning their experiences before, during and after their plan was put in place, as well as the support that they received while going through the whole process.
Questionnaires are totally anonymous and brief, taking around 10-15 minutes to complete.
The consultation is open now and will close on Friday 12 October.
The results of the consultation will be used to shape services and will have a direct impact on how EHCPs are processed in St Helens in the future.
The consultation can be accessed online at www.sthelens.gov.uk/
