CEED (Children's Emotional and Educational Development)
Academic problems in children often arise due to poor motivation, poor concentration & hyperactivity (ADHD) and difficulties in reading, writing or mathematics (SLD/Dyslexia). Comprehensive educational assessment (including IQ tests) can lead to a better understanding of the child's learning abilities & difficulties. This may be crucial in determining the strategies to maximize the child's potential.
Emotional Disorders in Children
Attachment with the parents, emotional atmosphere at home, temperament, genetics and situational factors impact emotional development. Young children with emotional problems often suffer from medically undiagnosed stomach ache, head ache, oppositional behavior, refusal to go to school and sudden decline in academics. We provide age appropriate approaches for the assessment and treatment of children with emotional problems
Adolescents can drop in to have a confidential chat with an experienced therapist. Adolescents can commonly have issues with sexuality, relationships, drugs or alcohol. They also commonly start to rebel against their parents as a part of their transition to adulthood. Adolescents respond well to an approach that is non-judgmental, respectful of their identity and empathetic. We also organize group sessions and stress (exam related) reduction programs
In a society that is obsessed with a just a few professions, children are forced to fit into boxes and lose their individuality. Comprehensive assessment of one's strengths, weaknesses, personality style and aspirations can aid one to choose a career that helps them realize their potential. We plan to offer such career guidance for university aspirants on a variety of career choices.
