Kate Fallon, General Secretary of the Association of Educational Psychologists said:


“A parent might want to consult an educational psychologist if they have concerns about their child related to many areas of their development and learning, especially when it’s affecting their happiness and progress in school.

Parents would normally discuss those concerns with their schools, following which the school might ask their educational psychologist for advice and help.

The educational psychologist would first discuss those concerns with parents, teachers and the children. They might carry out individual assessment of  the needs of the child by observing them in a classroom and playground setting, by looking at their schoolwork and by working directly with them find out more about their progress, their learning skills and their views about the concerns which have been raised.

The educational psychologist would then work with the child, the parents and the school and any other significant adults to consider possible solutions and information, tips and advice on how to best help the child overcome his or her difficulties.”


The AEP’s recommendation is to visit your Local Authority EP services websites, most of which have information regarding how EPs work and the sort of work which they do

For example,

Westminster Local Authority

Kensington & Chelsea Local Authority

Islington Local Authority

Hammersmith & Fulham Local Authority

From around the web


An excellent place to find more about Educational Psychologists is www.educational-psychologist.co.uk
