Our booklet about EHC needs assessment features our new look!
Available as an interactive PDF format, the booklet takes parents and carers step by step through the needs assessment process – from thinking about an assessment through to getting a draft plan.
Parents and carers have been involved in the development, helping to choose the design and commenting on the content. The PDF booklet has colour coded sections, small chunks of information and step by step guides to processes. Parent quotes help to bring the text to life and information is easy to find and clearly written. Within the text are interactive links to further resources and users can jump from the main contents list straight to the section they want to read.
This booklet is the first of several new guides for parents and carers. Future booklets in development include EHC plans and reviews, SEN support in schools and exclusions. Over the next few months we’ll be planning a bigger change with factsheets, guides and top tips getting a new look, more information on our website and our new logo!
