What is changing?

The government has made some changes to support children and youjng people with special education needs and disabilities (SEND).

Some of the biggest things are:

  • A bigger focus on your goals and supporting you to achieve them.
  • Asking you what services you would like.
  • Instead of a statement or Learning Difficulty Assessment, you will have an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP).
  • More support and information about your options as an adult.
