Children and young people who have complex needs which are likely to endure and which require significant input from a body other than the Education Authority should receive a co-ordinated support plan (CSP) to ensure their needs are met.
The ASN Tribunal hears references from parents, children (aged between 12 and 15 years - where they have capacity to do so and their wellbeing would not be adversely affected) and young people on specific matters relating to a child or young person’s CSP. The ASN Tribunal can deal with disputes about the issue or contents of CSPs.
The ASN Tribunal can consider the following issues
• The need for a CSP
• The contents of the CSP
• Providing the support indicated in the CSP in full
• Review of the CSP
