Meet Our Team Of Specific Learning Disability Psychiatrists

Overview

Specific Learning Disability (SLD) is a disorder in which the child has difficulty in either understanding, speaking, or in written language. The child may exhibit it in their lack of ability to listen, write, read, spell, or solve mathematical problems that their same age peers can do. Children with SLD have difficulty learning at the same pace as their other peers, may feel themselves to not be good in learning or think they are stupid, face major challenges in following school lessons and thus may avoid doing homework, and moreover develop low confidence.
Counselling thus becomes an essential aid in helping these children develop their learning skills as well as develop as individuals. Counsellors can help identify the specific challenges unique to each child with SLD and help make a treatment plan in conjunction with teachers and parents for enhancing the learning of the child. Counsellors can help parents and teachers understand the do’s and don’t’s in dealing with the child that makes it easier for the child to learn while at the same time reduces critical remarks from elders that could negative impact the child’s psychological and emotional well-being.
