Local Authority Perspectives: a different approach to Education, Health and Care planning

Free Webinar with live Q&A

Aired: Thursday 20th April 2017:  13:00 – 13:30


Since the Children and Families Act (2014) and the SEND code of practice have come into effect, Local Authorities have been grappling with significant and challenging changes that will deliver the requirements for individuals with special educational needs and disabilities.

This legislation places emphasis on finding ways of capturing the voice and aspirations of children and young people with SEND to inform the EHC planning process. And this requires a new approach.

In this webinar, we’ll look at the impact that Local Authorities from our community of practice have realised, through the adoption of Multimedia Advocacy and Rix Wikis.


This panel discussion will help you understand: 

Innovative approaches adopted by Local Authorities to put families and young people with complex needs in control of their information

How Local Authorities are capturing the voice of these individuals and their approach to sharing this information.

The efficiency and effectiveness impact to EHC planning

Give you the opportunity to have your questions answered
