Professional support in the form of supervision, consultation, training to SENCO’s, Inclusion Managers, Head teachers, class teachers and teaching assistants.
Parental support in the form of consultations and advice
Child support in the form of direct work with children
We take a systemic and holistic approach to working with any child. All new referrals are first offered a consultation in order to decide, in partnership with the parent and child, the best way forward. We are able to offer home visits, clinic based appointments and school visits to create a cohesive and joined up service for the child. When helpful, our Educational Psychologist will also invite other professionals within the team to join the work, so that we can use a team approach to support the child.
We are also keen to provide an Educational Psychology Support Service for children who are being home-educated; and we specialise in offering Educational Psychology to children with a diagnosis of ASC, and to children who are Looked After or Adopted.
The clinic can be funded by self-paying parents; schools, Local Education Authorities or Children’s Services. Increasingly our interventions are being funded by Pupil Premium.
