The East Sussex Independent Support service is offered by Amaze from Brighton.
Want to know what an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) is? Would you like to know more about them and how to get the best from your child's plan? Amaze will help you to understand your rights, inform the professionals what the family want from the EHCP, and get the best quality EHCP for your child/young person.
We are hosting 8 FREE events at four venues across East Sussex this summer. So come along and find out more!
There will be a presentation, plenty of time for your questions, and an opportunity to talk to Independent Supporters about the way Amaze's free service can help families with all aspects of EHCPs.
*At the events marked with *, Ceris Edwards, be attending the first half-hour of the session, will give a five-minute input on the Education Psychologist role in the needs assessment and will take a couple of questions relating to the Local Authority’s role in the process.
