Assessing the support provided through the EHC Plan

The new EHC Plans will have a strong focus on expected outcomes. The Local Authority will involve parents/carers in actively monitoring their childor young person’s progress towards their outcomes and longer term aspirations. A review will take place as a minimum every 12 months (every six months for a child under 5) when parents/carers will be invited to find out about their child or young person’s progress and contribute their views. Any changes that are needed to the EHC Plan will be considered at these review meetings, interim targets will be reviewed and new interim targets set.
