We provide a broad range of screening, assessments and interventions in relation to special educational needs and other conditions.
We work with all special educational needs and medical conditions. We have included the following conditions by name as they are common examples of needs we can identify and address. Common conditions we work with include:
Dyslexia is a specific learning difficulty (SpLD) related to language. We offer screenings, assessments and interventions in relation to Dyslexia.
Dyscalculia is a specific learning difficulty (SpLD) related to mathematical concepts. We offer screenings, assessments and interventions in relation to Dyscalculia.
Dysgraphia is related to largely illegible handwriting for a variety of reasons. Our assessments and interventions target handwriting to identify and address needs.
Scotopic sensitivity syndrome is also referred to as ‘visual stress’ and refers to self-reports of discomfort while reading. We offer assessments to identify needs in order to address them.
We assess non-specific learning difficulties to identify areas of need and support learning interventions.
Developmental delay refers to children who are not developing physically, mentally or emotionally at the expected ages. We provide assessments and interventions to identify and address needs.
Self-harm includes self-injurious behaviours and is also known as non-suicidal self-injury. Our specialists offer a range of assessments and interventions to support children and young people.
Eating disorders impact on an individual’s physical, mental and emotional health which is why we identify and address individual needs. Our assessments and interventions aim to improve the mental health and wellbeing of children and young people with eating disorders.
We assess and provide interventions for children and young people with social communication difficulties and autistic spectrum conditions (ASC). Our assessments identify areas of need whilst our interventions address those needs.
Attention difficulties exist for a variety of reasons and may or may not indicate attention deficit (hyperactivity) disorder (ADD/ADHD). We provide assessments and interventions to identify and address attention needs.
Sensory processing difficulties includes sensory processing disorder, sensory differences and sensory integration difficulties. Our specialists carry out assessments to identify sensory needs and identify interventions.
We provide specialist assessments and interventions to identify and address needs. Mental health difficulties can affect emotional, social and academic functioning.
Attachment difficulties can impact on many areas of an individual’s life. Through identifying needs and addressing them our psychologists can reduce the impact of attachment difficulties on a child or young person’s life.
Adjustment difficulties are sometimes known as situational depression as they are caused by circumstances, including major life changes. Accurately assessing adjustment difficulties can lead to effective interventions being put in place to address individual needs.
Developmental co-ordination disorder (DCD) may also be referred to as Dyspraxia. DCD affects co-ordination and can make children and young people appear clumsy. We provide assessments and interventions. When needs are identified they can then be appropriately addressed.
Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is a mental health difficulty involving repeated intrusive thoughts along with an irresistible urge to carry out a specific action or ritual. We provide specialist interventions for OCD.
Trauma can be caused by a single event or a sequence of events, and leads to a number of mental health challenges. Our specially trained psychologists provide therapeutic interventions to children and young people who have experienced trauma.
We identify and address needs identified with foetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) and foetal alcohol syndrome (FAS). Our holistic approach provides an accurate representation of needs.
Phobias are an anxiety disorder and can significantly impact an individual’s life. Phobias lead to irrational fears and can be eased through therapeutic interventions.
Hyperlexia can present in various ways and the most common is a strong, untaught ability to read alongside a fascination with letters.
We work with children and young people with all levels of identified and unidentified needs. Identifying needs in relation to a condition usually involves aspects of multiple assessments which is why we have these assessment packages. Interventions may be provided by a member of our team or, following training, by parents, carers and education staff.
Arrange an initial discussion to find out how we can benefit your education setting. The initial discussion lasts 2 hours and is a starting point to identify needs. The cost is £160.
