Psychopedagogy support is a basic part of the teaching and learning process, especially with pupils with specific difficulties. Of course, we must also remember that any one of our pupils may at some point need the support of this service. The infant school’s Psychopedagogy support service attends to the needs of pupils as individuals or as a group, and supports these two large groups with a systematic view from the teachers and the families.
The main tasks of our Psychopedagogy support team lie in the supervision of the pupils’ learning development process: activities which enable them to assess the children’s development; action to improve the children’s development, if needed, and coordination, guidance and advice for all those involved in our pupils’ development: teachers and parents. It is also worth highlighting that to complement this Psychopedagogy support, the school offers an external speech therapy service, when this is required. When it comes to their work, we highlight three aspects:
The Psychopedagogy support team makes an initial assessment and evaluation of the imbalances which may appear in the different areas of their development (academic, social, behavioural, emotional, motor, etc).
Advise, guide, and implement the right dynamics in the classroom so that the group works effectively as a whole.
Sharing information, advice, and guidance, guidelines based on observations, and where appropriate, referrals to external services, which can be done at the school.
