Educational psychology

Educational psychology is concerned with children and young people (CYP)
in educational and early years settings, between the ages of 0 and 25.
Herefordshire educational psychologists are employed by the local
authority to complete statutory psychological assessments of CYP as part
of the Education Health and Care (EHC) plan process. We also offer a
service to children and young peopleĀ who have not reached this statutory level of need, which schools can buy.

We support staff and parents in these settings to understand and help children and young peopleĀ who have a variety of challenges including learning and social and emotional difficulties, issues around disability as well as more complex developmental conditions.

We work in a variety of ways including through observations, assessments,
interviews and offer consultation and advice. We often provide training
to teachers and learning support assistants and others working with
children.
