Worried about your child or teenager's development?
Does your child seem to be developing at a speed different than others, either with the way they learn or the way they socialise? Do you suspect they have gifts that are not being supported, or a uniqueness that needs addressing? An educational psychologist can help.
What is an educational psychologist?
An educational psychologist is an expert on child development, and how it is affected by mental, emotional, and environmental factors. They work with how your child learns, behaves, socialises, and deals with their emotions.
What can an educational psychologist help with?
Some educational psychologists work with schools and the social system, assessing and diagnosing children and recommending them for support from local authorities.
Others choose to work more in a support capacity. Whether your child is having difficulties at school, home, or both, an educational psychlogist is there to help them reach their potential. They will also work with you, the parents, to help you to support your child and cope as a family.

Learning difficulties, autism, and ADHD
We can offer support, but are unable to offer assessment and diagnosis for child learning differences, autism, and ADHD. This is a very complex and carefully regulated process in the UK often involving a GP, paediatrician or community team. (*Note we do however offer assessment and diagnosis of these issues in adults aged 16+.)
