The Most Important Person in this process is you!

It is really important that you say what you like and dislike and what you want to be able to achieve in the future.

Did you know?

The law says that you should be involved as much as possible. Your views, needs and wishes should sit at the heart of the plan.

Everyone must listen to your views and feelings, your dreams and goals and the support you need to achieve them.

Try creating a video or a powerpoint about your views

Things to think about

  • What do you like doing at home and at school and college?

  • Would you like anything to change? What and why?
  • What do you think might help you at school?
  • What would you like to do in the future?
  • What can other people do to help you do your best?
