Learning disability is a neurological disorder in which the child faces difficulty in comprehending and processing information.

Kids with learning disabilities aren’t lazy or dumb. Their brains are simply wired differently.

People with Learning disabilities might lack basic learning skills such as reading, writing, performing calculations, etc and also life skills such as organizing, paying attention, reasoning, planning, remembering, etc.

  • Dysgraphia: The child faces trouble with writing, faces difficulty with spellings. These kids might have a poor handwriting, write letters in reverse, struggle with sentence formation and so on

  • Treatment for learning disability in our center includes:

    Cognitive-behavioural therapy: People with learning disabilities find it difficult to recognize and accurately label emotional states in themselves and others, but this has been successfully addressed by approaches to anger management in groups and with individuals.

    Schema-focused cognitive work has been shown to have a lasting effect on people with moderate learning disabilities. Role play and role reversal are particularly effective techniques for eliciting relevant thoughts in people with a mild learning disability.

    Family/systemic therapies: Concepts of 'loss' may need to be worked through at various stages of the family life-cycle, such as loss of the 'normal' child or sibling, or loss of aspirations for the individual's future development. The roles assigned to members of families are often the source of difficulty or dysfunction. A person with learning disabilities may be expected to be inept or incapable in all circumstances; or they may be seen as 'special' or a family 'pet'. They may fulfil a role that keeps family or parental relationships intact or provides a focus for dysfunction.

    Play therapy: This therapy helps in improving the interactions skills of the child which might be lacking due to their learning disability.

    Our trained clinical psychologist will be providing applied behaviour analysis, behavioural management training, parental training, social communication and cognitive behaviour analysis for treating the child
