Education Health and Care Plans
The Buckinghamshire SLT Service has worked closely with the Local Authority Special Educational Needs Team to develop a local format for the new EHC Plans. The format of all SLT reports will mirror the EHC Plans and will therefore include information on the child’s:
- Strengths – what the child can do
- Needs – the areas requiring development
- Long and short term outcomes (SMART targets)
- Provision – the type of SLT support required
The Therapists have already been involved in meetings with parents, teaching staff and other professionals to develop SEN Support Plans and also to convert statements into EHC Plans. The SLTs have found that the new collaborative Plans have a far more positive focus than the statements ever had.
