Psychopedagogy Team | International Private School Agora Barcelona
The Agora International School Barcelona Psychopedagogy Team is highly qualified and experienced in the field of infant-child psychology, educational psychology, learning difficulties, special educational needs, difficulties in managing emotions, high abilities and pedagogic and therapeutic interventions.
The creation of the Psychopedagogy Department is a result of the school’s desire to offer an effective tool to complement our educational and teaching work, with the main objective is to attend to the diversity and specific needs of pupils and establish multidisciplinary work, in which there is one line of action and common objectives.
We see attention to diversity as the pillar which gives meaning and value to the programmes and techniques of the Psychopedagogy team: a range which includes specific educational and/or emotional difficulties, high abilities, group dynamics, etc. We are aware of the importance of adapting our resources to meet the needs of our pupils, to facilitate their educational process and boost the abilities of every single pupil.
The work carried out by our Psychopedagogy department, for pupils, teachers and families, is the following:
- Educational support programmes: individual and in groups, both in and out of the classroom, to assist with and work on any learning difficulties identified.
- Individual intervention programmes which enable pupils to develop specific learning skills.
- Behaviour modification programmes: offer the teaching staff guidelines for action and strategies for readjusting inappropriate behaviours.
- Co-ordination with external professionals who carry out educational and/or emotional support with our pupils.
- Group workshops: both inside and outside the classroom to work on and strengthen social values and emotional intelligence/management of emotions.
- Vocational Guidance: Psycho-pedagogical tests which evaluate intellectual aptitudes, interests and professional preferences.
- Advise and guide teaching staff in their requests, as well as in the case of pupils with special educational needs.
- Advise and guide families in putting into practice effective guidelines and strategies for all types of problems.
- Parents’ School: meetings, debates, informal talks. The aim is to share any worries of members of the educational community about topics which most interest our families.
