Educational Psychologists work with children and young people, their families/carers and professionals in educational settings and in other services.
The service they provide is designed to promote the best possible outcomes in terms of learning, social and emotional development and inclusion. To do this Educational Psychologists work directly with children and young people, offer advice and consultation, training and development for professionals and information and guidance to parents.
The service is normally accessed by negotiation with another professional, typically some one who works in a nursery, school or clinic setting.
Educational Psychologists are also based at all of the One Point Centres in County Durham.
