What happens after ASD diagnosis? What are statements and IEP's?

DD has just been referred for assessment for ASD (suspected Aspergers) - waiting time of 9months or up to a year so nothing will happen soon. Paediatrician said formal diagnosis will help really for future as at the moment she doesn't need any support at school. Are they likely to just confirm the diagnosis and leave it at that? I hear the term statements and IEP's for school but have no clue what they mean, could someone talk through the process they've been through please? Thanks in advance.

Thank you so much for such a detailed reply, it's loads clearer now and I'll google SOSSEN and IPSEA. I'll look into DLA also and see if we meet the criteria. We have such a long wait for an assessment I may as well do all research before hand!
