About Us

About the Educational Psychology Service

The Educational Psychology Service provides a service across Aberdeenshire from pre-birth to 24 years old. We work with children, young people, families, educational staff and local authority colleagues. We also work with a wide range of other professionals. These include the health professions, social work staff, early years partner providers and post school training and education providers.

Educational Psychologists have skills in problem analysis and solution-focused discussion and apply their knowledge of psychology and child development to improve experiences, outcomes and opportunities for children and young people. We do this through:

Consultation          Assessment         Intervention         Training             Research

What is the role of an Educational Psychologist (EP)?

  • Educational Psychologists visit schools and work with staff to help children and young people feel happy in school and to learn and achieve.
  • We use our knowledge of psychology to support you and the adults around you to identify what support or help you might need to learn and to feel your best in school.

What will the Educational Psychologists do?

  • We will meet with the adults who know you best to find out more about you, what is going well and any difficulties you may have.
  •  At this meeting people think of ways to help and come up with a plan to make things better for you in school.
  •  We will meet again later to see how the plan is working.
