The Children and Families Act includes some key elements that affect families of disabled children and young people:
Education, Health and Care Plans will only be available for children with severe and complex needs. All families with an approved education, health and care plan will have a legal right to request a personal budget, if they choose.
Yes. The Council for Disabled Children has produced a parent-friendly guide on the new Special Educational Needs and Disability system.
There are a range of organisations who are available to assist parents and young disabled people with Education, Health and Care Plan process.
The Council for Disabled Children has information on who is available in your area - you can receive Independent Support from a trained and experienced person to help you navigate through the new SEN system.
Academies and free schools have the same SEN duties as other schools.
Scope can provide Independent Support to you and your child. Please fill out our Independent Support form to register.
