Educational psychology

Educational psychology is a service that specialises in children and young people in educational and early years settings, between the ages of 0 and 25.

Educational psychologists are employed by Herefordshire Council to complete statutory psychological assessments of children and young people as part of the Education Health and Care Plan (EHCP) process. They also offer services to children and young people who may not meet the criteria for an EHCP but who need support from an educational psychologist.

The service supports parents and school staff to understand and help children and young people who have a variety of challenges including learning and social and emotional difficulties, issues around disability as well as more complex developmental conditions.

The educational psychology service works in a variety of ways including through observations, assessments, interviews and offer consultation and advice. They often provide training to teachers and learning support assistants and others working with children. Referrals cannot be accepted directly from parents and must be completed by a staff member in the child or young person's educational setting.
