What is the impact of educational psychology services?

Educational Psychologists deliver a crucial and valued service that positively affects and impacts the whole SEND system. Educational Psychologists are responsible for identifying the needs of children and young people with SEND, to ensure they can develop the social and emotional skills needed for adulthood and independence.

They support children and young people with the development of learning, communication, physical and sensory needs. By working effectively with families and other professionals, Educational Psychologist’s can ensure the services they provide are having the best outcome and facilitate positive change.

What impact do Educational Psychologists have on the EHCP process?

The service that Educational Psychologist’s provide, directly impacts the EHCP process ensuring that children and young people receive suitable support for their needs.

Educational Psychologists identify the needs of children and young people with SEND which can benefit the EHCP process and ensure the EHC Plan will best support the individual. By engaging with Educational Psychologists, specific needs can accurately be identified during the EHC needs assessment.

Educational Psychologists inform local authority policies and strategies, to improve the ability to identify local level needs and multi-agency practices. Effective management within the local authority and educational psychology service system can facilitate positive change.

What impact do Educational Psychologists have on parents and families?

An Educational Psychologist's work isn’t limited to children and young people; their services also have an impact on families, teaching staff and schools. Educational Psychologists must work in partnership with families, schools and other professionals to create the best possible outcome. 

The effective delivery of Educational Psychologists services can impact the parents and families of children and young people. The emotional support that Educational Psychologist’s provide means that parents and carers can enhance their parenting skills and recognise their own strengths as a result of their improved understanding of their child’s needs.

What impact do Educational Psychologists have on educational settings?

Educational Psychologists work with teaching staff and can have a positive impact on schools by providing training and strategies to help children learn more effectively. They keep up to date with best practice, policy and research relating to how children learn to ensure that their advice and recommended strategies are effective.

By educating teaching staff, Educational Psychologist’s increase their knowledge, understanding and confidence, and have the ability to improve the overall environment for children and young people so they can be fully included in the classroom, school and community.

The work Educational Psychologists do with schools can have a positive outcome on the development of a child’s learning and skills as well as the relationship between teachers and the families of children and young people with SEND. This can also result in the implementation of new, whole school approaches that tackle issues across a range of education settings.
