Project focus

This project focuses on identifying and understanding the significant barriers that Educational Psychologists encounter in mainstream schools and examining the impact of these barriers on the effectiveness of their interventions.

Understanding these barriers is crucial for developing strategies to improve EPs’ work conditions and intervention outcomes and enhancing support for students with Special Educational Needs (SEN). Findings will inform policy recommendations and practical strategies for more effective educational support.
