Educational Psychology

Support for children and young people with a range of Special Educational Needs by enhancing their learning, development and emotional wellbeing.  

The Education Psychology Service provides assistance to schools, children and young people and their families, both at home and in the classroom. 

It provides information, advice, training and guidance for families, carers and school staff.

Educational Psychologists link with schools, special schools and specialist classes to help identify any barriers to learning which a child or young person may be experiencing. 

They support schools directly in the following ways:

  • Early intervention support based on evidence-based practice.
  • Capacity building support through training and development.
