OEAC accepts direct referrals from parents or carers following an initial consultation with the Psychologist.
Parents know that they are getting a personal 'child-centred' assessment, over which they retain complete control. If parents wish to pass the report to other people that is for them to do because it belongs to them.
Parents will be present throughout the assessment.
The psychologists will work with schools if this is requested by the parent or carer and the Headteacher has given their permission. There is no reason why assessments should not take place in the child or young person's school, with the active involvement of their teachers.
