Education, health and care (EHC) plans

9. Early reviews

If you have concerns about your child’s progress, you can ask for an early review at any time. Sometimes these are called interim or emergency reviews.

The local authority may also call an early review.

The reasons for an early review could include:

  • your child’s education, health or social care needs may have changed and the EHC plan doesn’t describe them accurately
  • the education, health or social care support in the EHC plan isn’t meeting your child’s needs

It is always useful to talk to the school about your concerns or speak to your contact in the local authority Inclusion Service before you request an early review.

Contact the school or your area Inclusion Team if you think a review would be helpful.
