Paediatric Psychology specialises in understanding thought processes and actions of children and interpreting them to help resolve issues causing emotional or behavioural problems. Paediatric psychologists can also perform psycho-educational assessments to provide information regarding a child’s intellectual capacity, or cognitive functioning, and their academic achievement. A psycho-educational assessment also helps identify any specific learning difficulties.
