What is the purpose of children’s support plans?

Co-ordinated support plans (CSPs) are individual plans that are created to identify and address the additional support needs of children who face barriers to learning (this could be a disability, health condition or children who are looked after or accommodated).

The Herald has questioned the value of these - highlighting a case where an autistic child had speech therapy included in his CSP by Glasgow City Council which was never offered to the child. The family took the case to a tribunal that ruled the Council where within their rights not to offer the speech therapy even though it was in the CSP.
