Interventions

We offer structured interventions that have been developed in response to identified school and individual needs. Programmes are delivered by our Assistant Psychologists, working under the supervision of an experienced Senior Educational Psychologist.

Sustainability for schools is built in through the opportunity for school staff to participate in the programmes. Materials are provided for follow up after the delivery of the interventions.
