Requesting an EHC Needs Assessment

If parents and the professionals who support a child believe she or he requires support which is over and above that ordinarily available from mainstream resources, a request may be made for an EHC Needs Assessment.

The request will usually be made by the education setting, but parents can make the request themselves.

If parents wish to make the request, we will need to contact the child’s education setting to find out what support they have provided, what effect that support has had, and the child’s rate of improvement. All requests are carefully considered and take into account all support provided so far and how your child has responded to that support. Within 6 weeks of a request being received by the Integrated SEND Service, you will be informed whether or not an assessment will be carried out.
