Educational Psychologists offer a wide range of appropriate interventions to all service users in relation to children and young people with additional support needs. We foster collaborative working and the sharing of professional skills for effective intervention. Intervention methods selected are based on best practice.
Similarly, interventions conform to the Code of conduct, ethical principles and guidelines of the British Psychological Society and to best professional practice. The aims, nature and duration of interventions are fully discussed with all service users, are seen to be relevant to their needs and are designed to support and empower them in developing solutions.
All interventions are carefully planned and implemented on the basis of agreed action plans, and when required make use of staff with appropriate specialist skills. Interventions are designed to be effective but also minimal, unobtrusive, efficient and equitable, and are fully coordinated with the work being done by other professionals.
