Lambeth Educational Psychology Service

 Who are we?

Lambeth Educational Psychology Service is a team of professionals trained in education, psychology and learning to Masters or Doctorate level. Many have also worked as teachers in mainstream and special schools. Educational Psychologists specialise in understanding how children and young people learn, think and behave.

What do Educational Psychologists do?

Many children and young people experience some difficulties during their years in education. We help children and young people, their parents or carers and those teaching them, to understand and resolve what is causing a barrier to their progress.

Educational Psychologists work with children and young people from birth to 25 years. We may meet with the child/young person individually or as part of a group, and will always work with the people who know and support the child. This is usually the child's parents, teachers and other involved professionals.

As a parent or carer your knowledge is important in helping the Educational Psychologist to understand your child's strengths and difficulties and identify ways to support them. You will always be actively involved in discussions, decision-making and actions.

As a young person we will always listen to your views and wishes, and take them into account when decisions are made.

Before we begin working with your child your permission will be asked for and you will be asked to sign a written consent form downloadable form  When a young person is aged 18 years and older, then they must be asked for their consent before a referral to the Educational Psychology Service will be accepted.
