Require EHCPs for all SEN children and those with a diagnosed disability

Petition Details

The Government should require local authorities put in place education, health and care plans (EHCPs) for all children who have been diagnosed with a disability or special educational need, as soon as they are diagnosed, so that schools and healthcare services are aware of a young person's needs.

Additional Information

Many vulnerable children are struggling at school & are not getting the care they need when required. Some parents have to fight for assessments & support from local authorities (LAs), and waiting lists for care and support are lengthy. Many LAs are slow & fail SEN children, which can lead to low achievement & poor mental health.
