Holly Brooks - Assistant Psychologist

I have recently joined the Educational Psychology Service within Telford and Wrekin Council as an Assistant Psychologist.

I have previously completed my undergraduate psychology studies at Liverpool Hope University. Following graduation, I undertook employment within a special needs secondary school as a learning support assistant.

Within the role I would like to further understand the role of the Educational Psychologist, to further my understanding of SEND and Inclusion and working within a local authority, prior to applying to the doctoral programme.

 My professional and research interests include:

  • SEND specifically Autism Spectrum Disorder
  • Positive psychological wellbeing (student and staff) and its promotion within schools
  • Parental attitudes towards education and the impact on a child’s academic outcomes
