Families should be offered a Way Forward meeting if an EHC needs assessment is not agreed. You told us that these meetings were not always being offered. 

Essex Family Forum and Essex SENDIASS shared your feedback with Essex County Council.  Leaders at Essex County Council (ECC) discussed this feedback and have made some changes. 

All families will now be offered a Way Forward meeting if a request for an EHC Needs assessment is not agreed.  To read about Way Forward Meetings and EHC Needs Assessments visit our information on What to do if the LA refuse to carry out an EHC Needs Assessment
