Psychological healthcare services delivered by compassionate, personable and professional practitioners.

Educational Psychology is a specific branch of psychology concerned with how individuals develop – cognitively and behaviourally – and is concerned with learning and the learning styles of individuals and groups. Educational psychologists work with children, young people and adults both in schools and other settings. They are trained in the assessment and treatment of learning difficulties (such as dyslexia or dyscalculia), disability, and other more complex developmental difficulties. Educational psychologists are also used to providing support and advice to teachers, parents, and other family members as well as the individual concerned. 

As well as identifying particular educational or learning difficulties an individual may be struggling with, they will also provide tailored advice – highlighting an individual’s particular strengths and difficulties – to both the individual concerned and other organisations that may be involved with the individual about. This support and advice comprises, amongst other things, particular obstacles an individual may face, how to accommodate or overcome these as well as highlighting the particular learning profile of the individual in question. 

Some times an assessment with an educational psychologist is required by a school, college or university for extra provision such as consideration of a particular difficulty when marking assignments, extra time in exams, or for Disability Student Living Allowance (DSLA). We offer an affordable assessment and report package or can offer more comprehensive reports as required.
