SEN provision has just undergone a major reform, the biggest changes for over 30 years. These changes form part of the Children and Families Bill and have extended the SEN system from birth to 25. The aim is to give children, young people and their parents greater involvement in ensuring needs are properly met.
The changes include:
· Replacement of Statements of Special Educational Need with a new, birth to 25 Education, Health and Care Plan.
· Offer of a Personal Budget to families with a child who has Special Educational Needs. This will allow parents to have more control over the support that they need.
· Improved co-operation between all services, schools and local authorities to ensure professionals are working more closely together.
· The publication of a Local Offer which acts as a directory of support for young people living in a local authority.
