Education Advocacy works with the parents of children and young people with special education needs (SEN), from 0 to 25, to obtain an Education, Health & Care Plan (EHCP), that is accurate, specific, detailed, quantified and lawful.
From advice provided through the EHC needs assessment process or annual review, we write a high quality document which clearly describes the needs of the child/young person, as well as identifying the person centred outcomes and provision. We specialise particularly in writing EHC Plans for children and young people with significant and complex needs.
We have taken on work from various Education Authorities, transferring Statements to EHC Plans, writing EHC Plans from EHC Needs Assessments as well as checking/quality assuring their EHC Plans before being issued. We have also completed EHC Plans for parents of children and young people with special educational needs.
Karen Soul also offers training sessions to clients on writing EHC Plans - please email to discuss the training package required.
Advice on SEN
We provide advice to parents around the SEN legislation and processes, as well as guidance on the content of the EHC Plans (what should go where, what must be included.)
We now offer the service of writing Parental Requests for EHC Needs Assessment.
We write 'working documents' and can liaise between Local Authorities, parents or the young person where appropriate, working towards producing a document which all parties can agree on.
We offer free support and help with EHCP and tribunal process. Within South Essex we run Woodland Warriors and Family Board Game Club for autistic children. http://takiwatangasupportservices.co.uk/parent-support/
