Sometimes we might need extra help in school, college or training. To find out if you need extra support, you might have an Education, Health and Care Needs Assessment.
This is a careful look at what you might need help with. Lots of people think about what you might need and then write reports. Sometimes it is called an EHC Needs Assessment.
You and the people who support you will think about what you can do on your own and what you might need extra help with. They will try to work out if you need any extra support.
At the end, they will decide if you need a plan to get you extra help in your school, college or training. This would be called an Education, Health and Care plan.
If you are over 18 you might need a plan to make sure you can finish your education or training.
