Working with an Educational Psychologist

What happens if an educational psychologist works with my child?

There are a range of activities, which EPs may undertake depending on the sort of concerns being raised.

For example EPs may:

  • observe children and look at the work they are doing
  • talk with children individually or in a group. We may ask them about friendships, feelings, teachers or members of the family and about their school work
  • use activities to assess a child's progress or general abilities.

As a parent, you may join EPs when they work with your child. However, experience suggests that unless your child is below school age it is usually better to talk afterwards.
