Following a discussion with Independent Reviewing Officers, social workers and other local authority staff, this briefing was developed to help IROs in carrying out their role in respect of disabled children and young people and those with special educational needs. It focuses, in particular, on education, health and care (EHC) needs assessments and plans made under the Children and Families Act 2014.
