We offer a range of different writing services as described below:
EHC Plan (EHCP):
We write EHC Plans from an EHC Needs Assessment. We ensure that all advice is included, where appropriate, to both describe the child/young person's needs comprehensively and ensure that recommendations for outcomes and provision are included.
Amended EHC Plans
We complete amended EHC Plans using advice from the child/young person's Annual, Emergency or Transfer Review.
Karen will complete Working Documents using the format set out by SENDIST. She can also write the 'Reasons for Appeal' on behalf of parents.
Parental Requests for Assessment:
Karen will complete the Parental Requests for an EHC Needs Assessment, taking account of all the relevant advice provided by parents.
Most importantly, advice and support:
Karen offers sensible and impartial advice free of charge. Alternatively she will signpost her clients to an organisation or someone who can help.
