There are some great resources available on the Contact website about EHC Plans that might be useful to some of you.

An EHC plan is a legal document that describes a child or young person's special educational, health and social care needs. It explains the extra help that will be given to meet those needs and how that help will support the child or young person to achieve what they want to in their life. The plan is drawn up by the local authority after an EHC needs assessment.
An EHC plan can be issued to a child or young person between the ages of 0 and 25 years.

From who needs an EHCP, what happens during an assessment, how to go about asking for an assessment and what an EHCP looks like, there is a lot of information available.
