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.
What is an Educational Psychologist?
Educational psychologists study learning processes, from both cognitive and behavioural perspectives. This allows them 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.
How can an Educational Psychologist help your child?
With education being such a vital aspect to success in life, the services of an Educational Psychologist will enhance and help children and young people to reach their fullest potential. An Education Psychologist will help the child or young person in the following ways:
- enhance the personality of the child or young person
- develop their talents to achieve excellence
- collaborate with families, teachers, schools, and educational institutions to improve their experiences of learning
- identify and treat any learning difficulties
- design educational development programs to address learning challenges for special needs children
Can an Educational Psychologist help with the Educational Environment?
Promises Educational Psychologists do not only assess difficulties children may be having with their learning. They also provide advice and training on how schools may help children to 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 as soon as possible. Early intervention will make a very big difference to your child’s success in life.
