Profile

As a Chartered Psychologist my role in the Student Learning Centre is to provide psychology led academic support to all students in IADT through 1:1 sessions, workshops and tutorials. The aim of the service is to empower students with the tools to become independent learners. The service also provides specialist support for students with neuro-diverse learning profiles including Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Autism Spectrum Disorder/Aspergers and ADD/ADHD. We take a biopsychosocial approach with students recognising that social and emotional issues have a huge impact on students’ academic performance. Those areas need to be supported in order for students to achieve academic success. Our aim is to teach students to self-monitor, self-regulate, self-manage their difficulties, teaching them ways to set rewards and goals and targets for themselves. Giving them tools to self-manage the learning journey. Some students will be able to do this after a couple of sessions and take the tools with them as they progress through college and beyond.
