South East Psychology believes that educational psychology services should be freely available through schools or local authorities to all children who are failing to make adequate progress or experience social, emotional or behavioural difficulties related to school. We are currently unable to undertake work commissioned directly by parents/carers.
If you have a concern about your child’s educational progress or behaviour in school, arrange to meet with the school’s Special Educational Needs Coordinator (SENCo), who will explain how the school is supporting your child. If your child fails to make satisfactory progress despite support and interventions, the school might make a referral to an educational psychologist (or another professional).
Primary SENCO May 2018
"As a SENCO the process of applying for an EHCP is arduous but it is made easier by the fact that the Educational Psychology reports from South East Psychology provide detailed, comprehensive evidence towards the Appendix Two that schools have to complete."
Secondary SENCo, December 2017
"The service you provide is invaluable and we could not do our job without it."
Parent, May 2018
"Lucy took time to understand what we as parents, were concerned about and ensured these were fully addressed in her report. Our son thoroughly enjoyed his assessment, Lucy put him at ease, meaning we obtained reliable and accurate results."
Parent, May 2018
"Best thing we ever did for our boys! So helpful and easy. Lucy was great with them."
