Abstract

Entry to university in based on merit, but what happens if you have a disability or a learning difficulty? While each university should have a policy in place to take disability into account there are competing agendas which can mean that university practices are sometimes unclear. It is important for Educational Psychologists to understand how these agendas are similar or different from those encountered when conducting local authority work. Educational Psychologists have transferrable knowledge and skills to help students at university, whatever the age of the student. This chapter will start to address these questions and is intended to inspire colleagues to develop the potential role for Educational Psychologists in higher education. In writing this chapter, I am drawing on my experiences as a practitioner educational psychologist who has moved from LA work to working with students in university and I am drawing on my experiences as a lecturer thinking about teaching and learning in an adult environment and being involved in working groups to help a university become more inclusive.
