According to the British Psychological Society: ‘Educational psychology is concerned with children and young people in educational and early years settings. Educational psychologists tackle challenges such as learning difficulties, social and emotional problems, issues around disability as well as more complex developmental disorders.
Educational psychologists also work in a variety of ways including observations, interviews and assessments and offer consultation, advice and support to teachers, parents, the wider community as well as the young people concerned. They research innovative ways of helping vulnerable young people and often train teachers, learning support assistants and others working with children.’
An educational psychologist, Kairen Cullen has worked with many parents, children, carers and adults who need guidance about their development and learning. She frequently appears as an expert in the UK print and broadcast media.
Meanwhile, Dr Angie Wigford and Dr Ian Smillie give an insight into a career as an Educational Psychologist.
