Why an Educational Psychologist?

Educational Psychologists provide information about all aspects related to children’s learning and development. Educational Psychologists assess, diagnose and treat children and adolescents. The primary focus is on the holistic development and well-being of children and how to ensure that children reach their full potential in emotional, social, behavioural and academic areas. The aim is to facilitate psychological adaptation, as well as the learning and development of children and adolescents in the family system, educational institutions and social systems.
