Our child-centred service that is evidence-based and quality-assured. As one of the largest teams of educational psychologists in England we develop and invest in specialist areas of knowledge and practice.
Early Years Educational Psychologists aim to work with the combined priorities of Manchester City Council, the children's family, the setting and the practitioners involved by using consultation approach.
This typically takes place in private and voluntary settings, in some school nurseries, and occasionally with children who are not yet in a setting. This process is helping our service reach the right children and families at the right time and forms part of the assess/plan/do/review cycles for these children.
Feedback suggests that families and settings value our work around understanding their children's emerging needs, understanding the SEN/EHC Plan processes and supporting families to make informed decisions regarding pre-school provision and transition beyond this.
Through the Early Years commission we have also provided Video Interaction Guidance (VIG) interventions for a number of settings who have identified children with Social Emotional and Mental Health needs who fall outside of the Rodney House Outreach Service remit.
