The Educational Psychology Team supports inclusion for children and young people with Special Educational Needs (SEN) through the application of psychology. They work with settings, carers, parents, children and young people aged 0 to 19 years with SEN, and with 0 to 25 years for Educational Health and Care Plan assessments.
An educational psychologist is trained to understand how children and young people:
- Develop their thinking, learning and problem solving skills
- Behave and their relationships with other people
- Understand feelings and control their behaviours
- Feel about school and what may improve their school experience
