The Child Psychology Department, made up of a multidisciplinary team, works together with the other Departments at St. Peter’s International School, with a view to optimizing resources and promoting the well-being of the educational community. In this way, working in partnership with the educational community, new ways of comprehending reality are developed, which will allow each child to reach his/her full potential. 

The Department acts on the relationships that are established in the school environment, bearing in mind that, throughout their education, any student may raise issues that require specific attention or differentiated educational resources. Its main areas of intervention include: assessments that characterize intellectual, neuropsychological, behavioral, emotional and pedagogical aspects; giving emotional support in the face of situations that significantly interfere with the student’s academic performance and personal well-being, recommending external assistance whenever clinical and/or psychotherapeutic intervention is considered beneficial; giving specialized pedagogical support in the face of specific learning problems, promoting equity in favor of discrimination regarding access to the curriculum; giving pedagogical support to teachers, parents and guardians, in educational activities, with a view to achieving academic success and the adequacy of educational responses; and implementing structured programs in response to specific needs (in groups or individually).
