Problem Solving Together
Consultations with key adults who are closely involved in a child or young person's life enables us to collaboratively problem solve and it is a key part of our work as Educational Psychologists. This can also include consulting with vulnerable groups of students including those who are Looked After by the Local Authority, children with sensory impairments as well as children with neurodevelopmental difficulties. Through this process we work together to reflect and consider possible ways to move forward. This work may also include liaising and attending meetings with multi-agency professionals.
Visiting Children and Young People in their Everyday Environment
Observing children and young people in their everyday environment is a key part of our assessment. This may include observing the child or young person at home or within their educational environment. Observations are a helpful assessment tool in order to explore the way in which a child or young person communicates and responds to their environment. Educational Psychologists are then able to consider how psychological theory and research can be applied in order to interpret these observations and to focus on the child or young person's strengths and difficulties.
Direct Work with Children and Young People

Social, Emotional and Mental Health (inc. behaviour)
