Educational Psychologists promote child development and learning, mainly with children and young people from birth to 19 years, through the application of psychology.

The service also works with schools and other agencies to support young people moving on from school to further education, training or employment.

As a result of the geographical area Educational Psychologists are based across Argyll and Bute to best meet the needs of children and young people, families, schools and communities.

The Association of Scottish Principal Educational Psychologists (ASPEP) and the British Psychological Society Scottish Division of Educational Psychologists (BPS SDEP) developed a leaflet describing the role of Educational Psychologists in Scotland which can be found through the following link:

Educational Psychology in Scotland leaflet

Educational Psychological Services have produced two information leaflets, one for Parents and one for Children and Young People.

The main administrative base for the Psychological Service is in Argyll House, Dunoon.
