Educational Psychology is the use of Psychology in human learning. Our Educational Psychologist will work closely with Parents, Teachers and Children, in identifying their educational needs. If and when an assessment is required, Parents/Guardians will need to give their consent.
What is part of the assessment?
- Assess students to uncover problems, through consultation with professional colleagues, observation, interview, or use of test materials
- Diagnose and clarify problems by discussion, interview and questionnaire
- Make recommendations as to the most appropriate educational programme to meet the child’s needs
- Work with teachers to help them work with pupils appropriately by advising them regarding teaching style, behaviour management, programme planning
If you or your child’s teacher feels that your child is struggling in some way in school, please contact us to discuss how we can help.
