Educational psychologists offer a wide range of appropriate school interventions to help support children and young people. Effective programmes are often built on strong collaborative working and the sharing of professional skills. They could be with individual children and young people, for groups or whole classes in school or be targeted at change at an authority level. Examples include supporting children and young people with complex needs to achieve their potential in their local school, providing therapeutic intervention, literacy development and supporting effective transitions. School intervention methods are based on best practice and current research. Interventions should be carefully planned and implemented on the basis of agreed action plans to address an identified need.
