EHC assessment checklist for parents and carers

Find out more about submitting a successful EHC assessment request

This checklist will tell you if your EHC assessment request is being made at the right time so that it will have the best chance of proceeding.

There are five questions in the checklist. They ask about what support your child or young person has received at their education setting. Your answers may suggest it's not the right time to request an assessment. In this case, you will be given advice about what you need to do, or alternative options. It does not prevent you from continuing the checklist or requesting an EHC assessment at any stage.
