The 1st September 2014 marked the implementation of Part 3 of the Children and Families Act 2014, described as the biggest reform to child welfare legislation in 30 years. The Act includes changes to special educational needs (SEN), health and social care and its provisions will affect all children and young people with special educational needs under the age of 25.
Statements of special educational needs for children in schools and learning difficulty assessments for young people in further education and training will be replaced by combined Education, Health and Care Plans (EHC plans). These plans will cover children and young people from birth to the age of 25, and will include in one single document information about health and social care needs as well as special educational needs.
Irwin Mitchell are holding an evening seminar that will cover the key changes across education, health and welfare and transition to the new system and will be of interest to teachers, parents, carers and professionals involved in the education, health and care of children and young people with special needs.
