COVID 19: latest information and advice

Advice from the Educational Psychology Service

A message from the Achieving for Children Educational Psychology Service (EPS) 

We all realise how difficult it can be trying to talk to children and young people about global crises. AfC Educational Psychologists are often asked about how much to tell children, how and when to talk to them, and how we can feel prepared for challenging conversations. The service have therefore started to compile a list of resources and helpful websites for you to use over the coming weeks.
