Child Guidance Clinic
Children today experience stress and have to cope with many demanding situations. Children from 2 years onwards are helped at our clinic. After the initial evaluation and identification of the problem, the child attends our Child Guidance Clinic. Conducted every Thursday and Saturday, it involves group sessions that aim at teaching :
Emotional skills Through role-plays and story - telling, the children are encouraged to express their feelings in an appropriate manner
Relationship - building Puppets and role-plays help the children to develop a healthy concept about relationships with family, friends and schoolmates. They are also taught assertiveness skills. Social skills: This involves learning to overcome shyness, express oneself and participate in group & social activities.
Behavior modification This technique encourages children to control restlessness, anger & distractions. It is also taught to parents to help them inculcate healthy habits in children.
Study Skills Children are taught exercises to improve concentration & memory; techniques for improving spellings & written expression, skills for active reading and study methods to suit their individual temperament. The project method is used to encourage reading, writing and information gathering through active involvement.
Creativity Exercises and activities to stimulate creativity are conducted. Making useful articles from waste are taught.
Physical activities As children have few opportunities to play outdoor games, we devote time to some physical activity or games at the end of every session. Apart from channeling their energy in a constructive manner, children are taught to follow rules, cope with loosing and also to be team members. Yoga-sessions are also conducted
