Educational Psychology is the branch of psychology concerned with the scientific study of learning how we learn. The psychologists use their training in child psychology and knowledge of child development to assess difficulties children may be having with their learning. They put psychology at the heart of learning, providing advice and training on how schools might help children to learn and develop. They recommend methods, or develop strategies in partnership with schools, to help a child learn more effectively. Strategies may include teaching approaches, improvements to learning environments, advice on curriculum materials and behaviour support.
There are many reasons why someone may be experiencing problems with their learning, and which an Educational Psychologist can help: dyslexia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), Aspergers Syndrome, behaviour, social and emotional development, anxiety, reluctance to go to school, communication difficulties, mental health concerns, etc.
