Dr Sue Harrison is a Consultant Child Psychologist, qualified both as a Chartered Educational Psychologist and a Paediatric Neuropsychologist. She has been working with children and young people for 20 years.
She is very experienced in conducting psychometric assessments, characterising children’s learning profiles and making recommendations to support optimal development and academic progress. An assessment can highlight strengths and specific or subtle areas of need, and explore issues such as intellectual potential, dyslexia, dyspraxia, attention, memory, processing or language problems.
She has studied and undertaken specialist training at University College London, the Institute of Education and the Institute of Child Health.
She currently works in private practice and also at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children. She has worked at Great Ormond Street for over 10 years, specialising in children’s learning and memory and in the needs of young people with neurological conditions such as epilepsy. She has trained and worked as a school teacher and has completed a research doctorate in children’s learning, memory and academic achievement.
She currently examines and lectures on two Masters courses at University College London, in the areas of infancy, child assessment, and learning difficulties.
