EHCP Information

The Local Offer sets out services for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities, and their families, from birth to age 25 which are available in Birmingham.
For some children and young people, an Education Health and Care Plan may be required.
Before a request is made for statutory EHC assessment, it is usual that intervention and support for a child will be co-ordinated through processes that aim for timely involvement of the right professionals according to each child or young person’s personal profile of education, health and social care needs (SEND graduated approach and Early Help).
The family and the advising professionals make the request based on their observations and assessments over time of a child’s special educational needs, future aspirations and their views of the resources required that are additional to or different from what is available to their peers.
