Educational Psychology Advice Clinics
In place of our face-to-face Drop-In Clinics, we are now offering support or advice to parents/carers over the telephone or via video call. These advice sessions do not constitute a formal referral to our service for direct work with the child, but can help parents/carers to implement useful strategies or seek appropriate advice via correct channels.
Who are Educational Psychologists?
