If you have concerns about your children's behaviour or development at school, from tots to teens, the team will help you through, bringing their extensive experience of children, with and without special educational needs. We have a wealth of suggestions and practical support to offer on what has worked for other children.
The team works in a consultative relationship with parents and teachers looking at their particular needs, helping them to develop and implement action plans that help the child with his of her particular difficulty.
An intial meeting with one or both parents to discuss the concern/s is set up. This may be followed by a full ability (IQ) and achievement assessment for the child, including administering a self-esteem and self-concept test. These tests ascertain the cause of the problem/s, highlighting the particular child's strengths and weaknesses.
The assessment report produced focuses on dealing with the weaknesses and/or particular difficulties that were identified. The psychologist/s may need a visit to the school to observe the child in the classroom, they will then advise the teachers on strategies to help the child. A letter, together with a detailed report, is provided to the parents and (where necessary) to the school, outlining recommended procedures. If needed, follow-up visits are arranged in order to assist with on-going difficulties.
We also provide programmes to help children who need study skills, exam skills, and memory skills or an individualised educational programme.
