Project: Educational Psychologists’ practice in eliciting the views of children and young people with severe learning difficulties
This project aims to provide an insight into current knowledge and practices amongst Educational Psychologists (EPs), across the UK, in relation to eliciting the views of children and young people with Severe Learning Difficulties.
How can you help?
If you are a qualified, HCPC registered Educational Psychologist (EP) of any grade (e.g. Principal, Senior or Main grade) in the United Kingdom, complete this online survey which will take approximately 20 minutes of your time. You can leave the survey and return to complete your response within one week.
You may also wish to participate in an online focus group; however, this stage is optional. You can express your interest in the focus group stage at the end of the survey.
