It is important that you have a chance to tell people what help you need and what you find difficult.
It is also important for people to know what you are good at and what you might like to do it the future. Your hopes and dreams.
If you need more help than school or college are giving you already, you may need an EHCP assessment. An EHCP stands for Education, Health and Care Plan.
An EHCP is a document that can tell your school or college exactly what help you need. If you, your parent/carer or teacher think you may need an EHCP, they should ask for your views.
Adults may ask you about things that you find difficult and what kind of help you would like. They may also ask you which school, college, or workplace you want to go to.
An adult can write down your answers if you’re not able to. It is okay if you don’t know the answers to all the questions, but it is important that they ask you.
If you want to, you can answer the questions yourself without help from someone else. Whichever way is best, it is important that the answers are your own words and that you say what you want.
