(EHCP) Process Northamptonshire
Stage 1: Is an Education, Health & Care assessment needed?
There is a single point of entry to access a co-ordinated response from specialist Education, Health and Social Care services through the EHC Team via the Co-ordinated Assessment Process. The application for a Co-ordinated Assessment can be made by a professional, with parental consent, by completing a request for assessment. Applications can also be made by parents or a young person over the age of 16 directly. Support for parents to complete the application form can be provided by the Northamptonshire Parent Partnership Service.
Please refer to the PDF below for further detailed guidance and further stages of the co-ordinated assessment.
