Our educational psychology colleagues can assess your child to understand what is happening for them in the way they learn.
This would involve completing forms about your child and an initial consultation with the family. Usually, we recommend that the educational psychologist visits your child at school to see how they are finding their experience there and to understand better what is currently working and not working.
You would then receive a report and a follow up consultation so that you can then move forward.
We recommend allowing up to 8 weeks from the initial consultation to the completion of the report.
You can add an educational support plan to an educational psychology review.
This would describe the support that your child would need in class as well as highlighting key targets and areas to work on to help your child make more progress.
This helps the school SENDCo and teaching team know how best to move forward and put the educational psychology recommendations into practice. This can also be undertaken on a stand alone basis if you already have an educational psychology report.
Together with an educational psychology report and educational plan we can also add in a few school ideas that would match the provision the educational support plan.
This is particularly useful if your child has not yet started in education or if you are considering whether your child needs to change school to access the provision that they would need.
