Educational Psychology

Learning How to Learn

In 2015, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) rated Singapore as having the best education system in the world. Although education is vital, it can be a highly stressful environment for any student be it in the local or international school system.

The role of an Educational Psychologist?

Educational psychologists study learning processes, from both cognitive and behavioural perspectives.

This allows us to determine whether a child or young person’s failure to reach their potential in education are subject-related, or due to cognitive issues e.g. learning disorders or the broader learning environment. Along the way, you will also discover your child’s educational strengths.

How can an Educational Psychologist help your child?

With education as a predictor of success in life, the services an Educational Psychologist provides are designed to enhance and help children and young people discover and fulfill their potential. Broad strategies are:

  • enhancing the personality of the child or young person
  • developing their talents to achieve excellence
  • collaborating with families, teachers, schools, and educational institutions to improve their experiences of learning
  • identifying and treat any learning difficulties
  • designing educational development programs to address learning challenges for special needs children

Can an Educational Psychologist help with the Educational Environment?

Promises’ Educational Psychologists not only assess difficulties children may be having with learning. We also provide advice and training on how schools may help children learn and develop.

What about special needs that the child or young person has?

If a child is born with learning difficulties, or it is clear from an early age that they require extra support to learn or develop, an educational psychologist can help with both assessment and treatment.

If there are concerns that your child is struggling at school, it is best to seek professional help from our clinicians as soon as possible. Early intervention makes a big difference to your child’s success in life.
