Educational Psychology support for schools
DS Educational Psychology offers schools and local authorities, support in preparation for students with additional and special educational needs undergoing statutory assessment.
Our aim is to provide long-term assistance in school; collaborating with staff, parents and pupils to maximise the support that can be provided. We aim to provide a flexible service, that can respond to the unique needs of each pupil, and help to guide a successful development plan.
The school environment is ever-changing and can always be improved. We know that, as a school, you are always searching for the most effective programmes, to give your pupils the best opportunity to succeed. We can offer a range of programmes, formulated by working closely with schools, to provide bespoke training and interactive workshops for staff. These workshops will include looking at common learning difficulties and social communication needs, as well as understanding more specific areas of difficulty such as selective mutism and attachment issues. We can provide coaching to staff to help develop togetherness in lessons and maximise student engagement.
Our services are not limited to the classroom, and we can provide training for parents and carers, as well as offering individual psychological assessments for children and young people. Our belief is that, whether this process begins at home or in school, we should always be positive and forward thinking. Our assessment aims to identify the relevant strategies needed to support young people long term, and ultimately help them to achieve their academic goals and secure a successful future.
