Our legal work experience includes Expert Witness work with children and families within Care Proceedings in the Family Court.
We also undertake specific medico-legal assessments and provide independent assessments for Special Educational Tribunals. In addition we have several years experience of assessments of adults putting themselves forward to be foster carers or adoptive parents.
Expert Witness assessments can include assessments of children and /or their families. With background and experience as Educational Psychologists we are well placed to provide cognitive assessments, comment on attachment, relationships, mental health, human learning and development. We are also able to provide information on appropriate support strategies, therapeutic interventions and training for staff and parents. As part of a wide network of professionals in this area, we are able to signpost to many other professionals if we are not able to offer direct help ourselves.
