School & Learning

The difficulties that children can experience are varied and vast, from learning difficulties and attention problems to behavioural difficulties (e.g. oppositional and defiant behaviours) or peer relationship problems. Whatever the difficulties at school, Marsden Clinical Psychology will assess your child’s concerns and develop a plan for improving their functioning at school. This may involve a clinical psychologist observing your child at school in the playground and classroom, interviews with teachers, and standardized assessment measures, such as questionnaires, to ascertain where the real problems are so an appropriate treatment plan can be developed and delivered in a professional and efficient manner.
