Educational Psychology Service (HIEP)

Teacher with boy

We recognise that not every child’s learning journey is the same. We believe that every child should realise their potential, and we understand the challenges that children and their families may sometimes face. Our goal is to identify and overcome barriers to learning by assisting parents, carers and teachers to develop approaches for children with needs such as emotional and motivational issues, attention difficulties and ADHD, literacy difficulties (including dyslexia) and social communication difficulties (including autism).
