Staff Profile: Vivienne Scott

Vivienne Scott

Educational Psychologist

A graduate of the University of Dundee and the University of St. Andrews, Vivienne joined DCIS from South Ayrshire in Scotland.

Vivienne has worked with a number of schools, from early years to secondary education, and has supported specialist placements for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD and other barriers to learning.  She holds a particular interest in neurodevelopmental disorders and has developed training programmes, strategies and practice-sharing models for parents and teachers of students with ADHD.  Her collaborative work achieved Shire UK Pharmaceuticals’ Gold Award for innovative practice in ADHD.  Vivienne also has two publications in the fields of ADHD and well-being.

Vivienne has contributed to the development and evaluation of nurture groups for vulnerable learners with attachment needs and she is a trained ‘companion’ for the Seasons for Growth programme, designed to support students through significant change, loss and transition.  Her interest in attachment theory led to her involvement in a national pilot study to extend Nurture Groups and approaches at a whole-school level.  She hopes to develop these areas of student support further at DCIS.

In her free time, Vivienne can be a bit of a thrill seeker.  She has dropped from the world's biggest swing, scaled one of the world's highest abseils and skydived from over 14000ft.  When on the ground, she also enjoys running and fostering rescue dogs.
