Advice, Resources and Training

Our Service can provide advice and guidance to parents or carers and children and young people as well as dedicated resources covering a range of topics.

Training for parents may include age-specific topics such as transition to post-primary, puberty and behaviour strategies.

Schools can access training via the Children and Young People's Service Training Programme.

Pupil Support

Children and young people who have Severe Learning Difficulties as their identified SEN and who have been assessed by an EA Educational Psychologist, may be provided with bespoke support, where appropriate.

To provide the most appropriate level of support, our Service will work together with the child, their parents or carers, educational staff and other professionals.
