EDUCATIONAL PSYCHOLOGY TEAM (EPT)

Educational Psychologists Barnet

An Educational Psychologist works in educational and community settings to improve outcomes for children and young people under the age of 25.

 

The needs that we consider:

  • Communication and interaction

  • Cognition and learning

  • Social and emotional mental health

  • Sensory and physical

 

Our Educational Psychologist Team (EPT) work with educational and community settings in Barnet to create an inclusive culture, identify the strengths and needs, and support staff, parents, and children/young people. Educational Psychologists can support settings at:

  • a whole organisation level, such as developing policy and procedure and staff trainings

  • group level, such as supporting a particular year group or support around a particular need

  • individual level, with an individual child or young person

 

BELS’ EP service uses a consultation model of service delivery. This means work begins by working collaboratively with key stakeholders to identify desired outcomes, existing strengths, areas for improvement, and creating an actionable plan that meets the unique context.

 

BELS’ Educational Psychologists also provide bespoke training opportunities to staff or parents to empower them with the skills and confidence to better support children and young people. Previously, these have included:

  • Supporting children with literacy or numeracy difficulties

  • Precision Teaching (an evidence-based intervention to support children of young people to acquire and maintain specific academic skills)

  • Emotion Coaching (a way to support children “in the moment” to manage their emotions and regulate behaviour)

  • Trauma-informed Schools

  • Supporting children to develop social skills

  • And training focused on specific disorders, such as Autism, Down Syndrome, and Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD)

 

Our Educational Psychologists are trained and experienced in delivering evidence-based interventions to individual and groups of children, parents, and staff. Some of the interventions currently on offer include:

  • Play-based Therapeutic Approaches

  • Motivational interviewing

  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapeutic Approaches

  • Emotional Literacy Support Assistants (ELSA)

  • Video Interaction Guidance (VIG)
