Hello. I am Simon Kitson, an independent Educational Psychologist based in Bristol. I set up EDGE Psychology in order to help children and young people who are experiencing difficulties at school, especially those struggling with academic work or having behavioural issues. My special interests are Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

Parents, teachers and young people themselves all hold a piece of the puzzle as to why a child may not be thriving; my aim is to bring the pieces together so that children can achieve their educational potential.

I have over 20 years’ experience carrying out independent, evidence-based assessments of children with Special Educational Needs (SEN) for parents, local authority teams and the independent sector. I also provide training programmes for parents, teachers and other professionals and have developed specialist programmes across both health and education commissioning bodies.

If you think I can help, please get in touch.
