This might be supported by other staff implementing therapy activities/programmes; provide training for staff in a school or FEI to meet particular needs; support the monitoring of the child’s progress and provide reports as required. 12.34 Where it is believed that a health body might be able to provide a relevant treatment or service that is likely to be of benefit in addressing the ALN of a child or young person, the Act provides that a local authority or FEI is able to refer the matter to a health body for that purpose. The duties on health bodies are set out in sections 18 and 19 of the Act. 12.35 Who can refer? The referral relates to A child A young person who is a registered pupil at a maintained school A young person who is not a registered pupil at a maintained school (i.e. is educated at an FEI or specialist placement) The body that can refer A local authority A local authority A local authority or an FEI (dependent on who is preparing or maintaining the IDP. 12.36 A local authority or FEI can only make a referral to a health body where it: has informed the child, child’s parent or young person that it intends to make the referral; has given the child, child’s parent or young person an opportunity to discuss whether the referral should be made; is satisfied that making the referral is in the best interests of the child or young person; and has identified the ALN that requires the advice of the health body. 12.37 Where a matter is referred, the health body must 166 consider whether there is a relevant treatment or service that is likely to be of benefit in 166 Section 18(4) of the Act Page | 122

addressing the child or young person’s ALN. Where the health body identifies such a treatment or service it must: 167 secure the treatment or service for the child or young person; decide whether the treatment or service 168 should be provided to the child or young person in Welsh; and take all reasonable steps to secure that the treatment or service is provided in Welsh, if it decides that the treatment or service should be provided to the child or young person in Welsh. 12.38 Where a health body identifies such a relevant treatment or service that is likely to address the child or young person’s needs, it must 169 : inform the school, FEI or local authority body that made the referral of the treatment or service; if the referral was made by a body which does not maintain the IDP, inform the body which does maintain the IDP; and where the health body believes that the ALP should be delivered in Welsh, inform those listed above. 12.39 The body maintaining the plan must 170 then describe the treatment or service in the IDP, specifying that it is ALP to be secured by the health body. Where the health body believes the ALP should be delivered in Welsh, the body maintaining the plan must 171 specify that the treatment or service is ALP that should be provided in Welsh. 12.40 The health body must then deliver the ALP. The ALP can only be removed or changed where there is a review of the IDP and the health body agrees, or requests the review. Where the health body requests that the ALP that the health body must secure is removed or changed, the school, FEI or local authority that maintains the IDP must do so. 12.41 Where the Education Tribunal for Wales orders the revision of an IDP in relation to ALP that a health body is to secure, a health body is not required to secure the revised ALP unless it agrees to do so. Agencies should work together to reach agreement in such circumstances. 167 Section 18 (5) of the Act 168 A “relevant treatment or service” means any treatment or service that the an NHS body would normally provide as part of the comprehensive health service in Wales continued under section 1(1) of the National Health Service (Wales) Act 2006 (c. 42) 169 Section 19 (1) of the Act 170 Section 19 (2) of the Act 171 Section 19 (3) of the Act Page | 123
