Children and young people between 0 and 25 years in education who have a special educational need or disability that cannot be met by support that is usually available in a school or college can apply for anEHCP  (Education Health Care Plan). The plan co-ordinates your child's educational, health and social needs and sets out any additional support they may need. IAS Service will support you through the process of applying for an EHCP.
