It is usually necessary to carry out a detailed investigation to find out exactly what a child's special educational needs are and what extra help they may need before a special school place is considered. This process is called a Education, Health and Care assessment.
It is only necessary if the child's school or education setting cannot provide all the help that a child needs, or if a child is identified as having severe disabilities at a very early age.
A parent, school or education setting can ask the local authority to carry out a statutory assessment. The local authority will consider information about the child's progress at school, advice from other professionals who support them and the parents views.
