ISS works with schools, colleges and other agencies to provide advice, guidance and support to ensure the needs of children and young people with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) are met within an educational context.
We are a team of Educational Psychologists, Autism Advisors and SEND Teacher Advisor. ISS team members work with schools to plan, implement and evaluate programmes of intervention designed to support children with SEND.
Referral to ISS is usually through your child’s school, however parents, Slough SEND service and health professionals may also request a referral.
All Educational Psychologists working with the service are registered with the Health Care Professionals Council (HCPC).

How this service is funded
The Educational Psychology service has a statutory role in providing psychological advice for children and young people who are undergoing an Education, Health and Care Plan assessment – it is the responsibility of the local authority to fund this work under the terms of the Children and Families Act 2014.
The remainder of the Educational Psychology Service is traded (i.e. funded by schools and other education providers, or by other services that require the services of an Educational Psychologist).
Who is this service for
Schools, colleges, early years settings and services seeking additional guidance and intervention in order to ensure that children and young people who are experiencing special educational needs and disabilities (including mental health and wellbeing concerns) have their needs appropriately identified, and are appropriately supported and included.
