    Thank you very much for your response. The questions I have are as follow:

    1) What does being an educational psychologist mean, in your opinion?
    2) What does your typical day at work consist of?
    3) Can you briefly describe the significant processes children undergo mentally/psychologically when developing?
    4) Can you briefly explain the behavioural traits that children show when developing thinking patterns?
    5) How are assessments used to treat (your) clients?

    Something that I considered before turning off ed psych was the fact that the majority of the ones I spoke to had been SENCOs first. Not all, but it is generally a job a lot of training providers and councils like you to have done first. They let other people through yes, but it is largely a promotion from the SENCO role. I wanted to do something more therapeutic and I couldn't really see myself in the role. I went for Speech and language therapy in the end. If you're interested in the educational side of things, SLT is a less competitive but fairly similarly remunerated profession where there's a lot of overlap with ed psych.*
