Early Help Assessment (EHA)


The EHA exists to help you support your child. It can lead to a quick solution or help to identify extra support if needed. The EHA will ensure that everyone involved with your child – such as teachers and health visitors – work together to support them. The EHA will help your child receive the right support at an early stage before their needs increase. As the EHA is a shared assessment, you and your child will not have to repeat the same story to different workers.
