SEN, EHCP and Tribunal Preparation Course Overview and Curriculum
What will I benefit from this course?
This course has been created to help parents of children in England with Special Educational Needs (SEN), to get all or most of the support that their children are entitled to both morally and legally.
On April 1st, 2018, all local authorities in England were required to ensure that children with SEN should be awarded an Educational and Health Care Plan. This is also true for children who meet these criteria. Whilst it is the responsibility of the local authority to initially draft the layout of the plan, following a needs-based assessment of a child, (with the agreement of the parents, teachers, health care professionals, or the young person if aged between 16 and 25), the local authority must equally incorporate health and social care provisions to ensure the overall wellbeing for the child or young person.
Many local authorities are failing to meet these requirements, even though the SEND code of practice clearly states what an EHCP should include. The Department for Education issues a deadline of 20 weeks to get these plans in place. In July 2019, data showed that over three thousand children were awaiting the provision specified in their EHCP. So, even though professionals have identified the needs of the children, those needs are still not being met.
The covid-19 did not help matters, further widening the gap between children and their needs.
Our SEN, EHCP and Tribunal Preparation Course will deliver expert advice to parents and teachers involved in the care of children with additional needs. You will learn how to improve your approach to developing and implementing EHCPs, ensuring that statutory requirements are being met so that your children are provided with the help that they are entitled to.
This program covers various learning difficulties, various therapies that could help your child, SEN provision, EHCP’s and the appeals process, and references to the laws in England where appropriate.
You will gain awareness and understanding of what is involved during a diagnostic assessment. You will be introduced to child psychotherapies and the beautiful world of creative therapies, understanding how these therapies can benefit the children in your care. You will also be introduced to different types of learning bearing in mind that children are individuals with individualistic learning styles.
As they say, it takes a village to raise a child; we can help all our children, together.
You will gain:
24/7 access to the course anytime.
No hidden fees.
Knowledge in the application process of SEN, EHCP, and Tribunals.
Better earning potential.
Who should study this course?
Teachers, parents, childminders, health care professionals, psychotherapists, creative therapists, and family members of children with additional needs. Anybody who works with children should be aware of the difficulties they might be facing.
‘I must confess, as a teacher, I initially thought this course would
only be well suited to SEND teachers and parents only. I decided to do
it anyway and I am pleased to say it has been mind blowing.
A child in my class has just been awarded an EHCP and watching the joy of the
parents is enough reward. Was it down to this course? I cannot say.
Was it partly due to the knowledge I acquired from this program?
Oh yes, absolutely! We can never stop learning. I strongly believe every
teacher and parent should be educated in this system.’
