Dr D H – Chartered Educational Psychologist
I have been practising educational psychology, on a consultancy basis, for the last 15 years. I have extensive experience with conducting psycho-educational assessments for a wide range of learning and behavioural difficulties, including dyslexia, dyspraxia, autistic spectrum difficulties and behavioural emotional difficulties. I am an active researcher and my educational psychology practice is underpinned by up-to-date research evidence in my field and a teacher of a range of courses on special educational needs (theory, policy and practice).
