The role of an Educational Psychologist

An Educational Psychologist works with children and young people in educational and early childhood settings.


The primary role is to address challenges such as learning and complex developmental disabilities, social, emotional and disability issues that affect a child’s educational learning.


Their work includes observations, interviews, and assessments, to provide guidance, advice and support to teachers and parents. Educational Psychologists also research innovative ways to help those who work with children and new ways that may help children to learn.
