Children and Young People

Evolution Psychology can provide a range of services to support Children and Young People.

Children and Young People

Educational Psychologists are skilled in working with children and young people who are experiencing difficulties at nursery, school or college, and are able to provide advice to parents and teachers.  Work might typically involve an initial evaluation of the presenting difficulty through an assessment of the child or young person and consultation with a parent/carer. Educational psychologists consider the interaction between the child, adult and environment when carrying out an assessment, and aim to work collaboratively with others in considering these factors wherever possible. It may, therefore, be appropriate to consult with school staff and carry out observations and assessments within the educational environment as part of the piece of work. This will only be done with the consent of the parent/carer.

Educational Psychologists at Evolution Psychology are able to carry out assessments and provide advice for children who have been diagnosed with, or show traits of, a clinical/medical condition (e.g. Attention Deficit Hyper-Activity Disorder, Autistic Spectrum Disorder, Attachment Disorder, Sensory Processing Disorder).  They can also provide training for school staff, parents and carers to help promote understanding of these issues.

In addition to completing assessments and providing advice for the child/young person and key adults, Evolution Psychology is also able to offer ongoing support and interventions through direct work with the individual. The nature of this will be determined by the outcome of the assessment, but might include sessions which focus on the development of specific skills (eg Social Interaction Skills, Emotional Awareness/Regulation Skills) or a therapeutic intervention to address an underlying psychological issue (eg anxiety, trauma).

Supporting Parents

Educational Psychologists are also able to support Parents in understanding their Child’s development and help them consider alternative approaches if relationships in Families become difficult.  Where a Child or Young Person has been diagnosed with a Medical issue which may be impacting on their Social, Emotional or Cognitive development, Evolution Psychology can work with Parents to help them understand and support their child’s needs.

Evolution Psychology also has experience working with families receiving support and intervention from Social Care Direct/Social Services, ranging from involvement in Common Assessment Frameworks (CAFs) to Child Protection Conferences and Looked After Children (LAC) procedures.

 

Common Assessment Framework

The CAF is a shared assessment and planning framework widely used across Children’s Services in England. It aims to support the early identification of children’s additional needs and promote co-ordinated service provision to ensure those needs are met.  Evolution Psychology can attend CAF meetings and provide psychological advice and perspective to the procedures.

 

Child Protection Conferences

Educational Psychologists at Evolution Psychology have experience in CPCs and are able to contribute to the statutory process at the request of the Local Authority, Other Professionals or Parents.

Looked After Children

Local Authortities have overarching responsibility for safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children and young people in their area and have additional statutory responsibilities for children who are placed in their care. Evolution Psychology can work with Local Authorities and Carers to help them identify, understand and support the needs of children in their care.

 

If you would like further information or if you would like to discuss your individual needs or requirements, please contact us in complete confidence and with no further obligation.

Evolution Psychology can provide Educational Psychologist services to Local Authorities in order to assist them in meeting their statutory obligations under the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities regulations outlined in the Children and Families Act 2014 by providing independent psychological advice in relation to a child or young person.

Additionally, Evolution Psychology is able to provide Educational Psychology services to schools/academies on behalf of the Local Authority on a daily, short or longer term basis.
