National Educational Psychological Service Information for Parents

NEPS stands for the National Educational Psychological Service. NEPS psychologists specialise in working with the school community. We work with both primary and post-primary schools. We are concerned with learning, behaviour, social and emotional development. Each psychologist is assigned to a group of schools.

We work in partnership with teachers, parents and children in identifying educational needs. We offer a range of services aimed at meeting these needs, for example, supporting individual students (through consultation and assessment), special projects and research.
