Aims of the Educational Psychology Service

The Educational Psychology Service strives to work in partnership with parents, schools and other professionals to ensure that all children and young people up to the age of nineteen develop and learn through effective education, with a particular emphasis on those who are experiencing difficulties within education.

We aim to provide an effective, high quality service delivered with fairness to children and young people.

Referrals to the Educational Psychology Service

Referrals to the Service are generally made by school principals following procedures laid down in the Code of Practice.

Pre-School children whose development is causing concern are mainly referred by Community Paediatricians with the Health and Social Care Trust.

If a child attends an SELB nursery school the Principal may make the referral.

These booklets have been prepared by a Working Group of Educational Psychologists from the five Northern Ireland Education and Library Boards with publication costs funded by the Department of Education. One is intended primarily for use by schools in addressing the needs of pupils who have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), or who have difficulties characteristic of the condition.

The other booklet is aimed specifically at parents and carers of children with ADHD. It will be distributed to them through Psychology Services, Health based professionals and the Voluntary Sector, throughout Northern Ireland. Both booklets will be freely available on the websites of the five Education and Library Boards.
