In this episode, Dr Abigail Wright, an Early Years Specialist Educational Psychologist from South Wales. My discussion with Abi was broad and engrossing. It felt like it could have gone on all night. We discussed Abi's drive to become an EP from an early age, her experiences of becoming a parent in the same year that she graduated and her journey to fulfilling the role she does as a practitioner psychologist and mother of two young children. Our chat meandered between the importance of caregivers and professionals perception of them, parenting on a budget in a pandemic and the value of play in the Early Years.
It was a really interesting 90 minutes and I'm sure there will be a part II in the future. Exciting times.
