Education Psychology

Educational Psychology is an Access to Education service.

Access to Education (A2E) works in homes and educational settings to support children, young people and their families. Our holistic approach enables participation, engagement, inclusion and equality of access.

As an integrated organisation, we bring together six teams into one service. Unity, collaboration and shared understanding put children, young people and their families at the centre of everything we do.

Educational Psychologists (EPs) are professionally trained with specialist experience working with children, young people and families in a wide range of learning and social contexts. EPs use expertise of psychological theory and research to develop an understanding of complex needs and situations, addressing a wide range of child and adolescent developmental concerns including Special Education needs (SEN).

EPs work collaboratively with key adults to enhance and sustain learning and emotional wellbeing particularly in schools and early years’ settings. This is achieved in partnership with parents and carers and a range of other professionals and actively listening to the voices of children and young people.
