Educational Psychologists (EPs) are skilled assessors with extensive training in all aspects of child development that affect learning.
An EP assessment will identify the underlying factors that may be holding children back at school and provide strategies for support to help a child achieve their full potential.
EP assessments are broad based and cover all the different factors that may be affecting children. They will take into account your particular school culture and processes, and can unite families and schools by identifying a clear way forward.
An Educational Psychology assessment involves:
Meeting the pupil either at school or in our consulting rooms.
Spending time talking with and observing the pupil.
Carrying out tests of intellectual development and academic achievement.
A home/school consultation meeting to feedback the psychologist's findings immediately after the assessment.
A full written report within two weeks.
What can you expect as an outcome of the assessment?
A thorough explanation of your pupil's difficulties and the underlying issues which are holding him or her back. This may involve a diagnosis.
Personalised and specialist recommendations that can be incorporated into learning support plans at school.
Ideas and advice for parents to work with the child at home.
Suggestions for reasonable adjustments and exam access arrangements, if appropriate.
Signposting on to more specialised assessments, if appropriate.
An EP report which can be used to inform you pupil's teaching and which can also be used to draw up an EHC Plan.
