Hints and Tips

Since July 2009 the term 'Educational Psychologist' has been regulated by the Health Professions Council (HPC). HPC has a list of certain titles (e.g. 'Educational Psychologist', 'Speech and Language Therapist', 'Occupational Therapist' and many others) that may now only legally be used by people registered to the HPC. Parents can search the HPC database at www.hpcheck.org to check that a practitioner is HPC registered.

East Court Assessment Centre

Michael Thomson and Amanda Cannan offer a Psychological and Educational assessment service for children and adults. We are experienced HCPC registered Educational Psychologists.

We both worked at East Court, a specialist school for a range of SpLDs and dyslexia and are therefore familiar with the kinds of schools and units inspected by CreSTeD and, having taught such children, pride ourselves in providing detailed suggestions for teachers as well as diagnostic assessments. Dr. Thomson was Principal at East Court for 27 years, has written text books on dyslexia and is a recognised expert in the field. Mrs Cannan, as well as a working as a Psychologist at the school, was a Specialist Teacher. We undertake diagnostic assessments, DSA and exam concession assessments as well as reports for Tribunal purposes. We also have an HCPC registered Speech and Language Therapist- Sarah Wall, who also worked at East Court - in the practice.
