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.
Our educational psychologists support 16-25 year olds with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) to prepare for adulthood and achieve desired outcomes in education, employment, independent living, community inclusion and health.
We provide psychological assessments and interventions in sixth forms, FE colleges, specialist colleges and at home. We offer training to staff in post 16 settings on a variety of issues relating to the psychological well-being of students and the education of young adults with SEND.
We are commissioned by Manchester City Council to carry out statutory assessments and we work closely with the LA to achieve the best outcomes for young people with SEND. We have links with a range of organisations such as the Greater Manchester Autism Consortium, the Youth Offending Team and the Looked After Children’s Team, to work towards this aim.
Our educational psychologists have knowledge about courses, programmes and pathways, and local organisations available to support young people aged 16-25 with SEND.
We understand local systems, services and resources within education, health, social care and the youth justice system.
