Dr Kait Baxter,

Educational and child psychologist

I am passionate about the application of psychological theory and research to promote young people’s academic engagement and emotional wellbeing

I believe that it is only when young people feel understood and valued that they are able to fulfil their potential. I work tirelessly across education, social care and with parents to try and aid all the young people that I work with to reach their potential.

My experience covers the 0-25 age range and includes working as a youth worker, primary school teacher, research assistant and educational psychologist. While working as a teacher I specialised in supporting pupils with social and emotional mental health (SEMH) needs, as well as being a mainstream teacher. I have also carried out doctoral research around supporting the inclusion of children with autism within mainstream classrooms. I have links with the University of Manchester and the doctoral programme.
