Choosing a school/college with an EHC plan

Parents or young people have a legal right to request that a particular school or college is named in an education, health and care (“EHC”) plan (or to express a preference for an independent school, college or other institution).

If you have received your draft EHC plan, you can use the information on the IPSEA website to request for a particular school.

Accessing Public Services Toolkit

This toolkit emerges from a research programme funded by the charity Cerebra. Cerebra is the charity dedicated to helping families with children with brain conditions discover a better life together. In the writing and editing of this toolkit we have benefited greatly from those who have helped develop the ideas in the Guide, and provided constructive feedback on the drafts. We are particularly grateful to Alison Thompson, Claire King, Dawn Cavanagh, Karin Crimmins, Lisa Reakes, Marie Macey, Sian Taylor and Wendy Merchant, our Cerebra Family Research Ambassador pilot members.
