The EHC plans should be used to actively monitor children and young people’s progress towards their outcomes and long term aspirations. They must be reviewed,as a minimum, every 12 months and the first review must be held within 12 months of the date when the EHC plan was issued. Reviews must focus on the child or young person’s progress towards achieving the outcomes specified in the EHC plan and to consider if the outcomes remain appropriate.
The reviews must be undertaken in partnership with the child and parent/carer. All reviews taking place from Year 9 and onwards must include a focus on preparing for adulthood including employment, independence living and participation in society. Transition planning must be built into the EHC plan and where relevant should include effective planning for moving between children’s and adults care and health services.
