Early Intervention and EHAP

We fully understand the complexities of our children’s needs and the impact that this has on family life. At Castlebar School, we invest heavily in providing early support to prevent concerns or challenges escalating into larger problems. The Early Help Assessment and Plan (EHAP) is a tool kit used when the needs of a child or family require multidisciplinary or multiagency work and a targeted approach.
