Meet Our Team Of Specific Learning Disability Psychiatrists

Overview

When a child or an adolescent has a learning disability, they may find themselves struggling to cope with in school academically. A myriad of other psychological, emotional, and social issues can tag along for the child which can include feeling not good enough, criticizing themselves or being criticized by teachers and parents, being labelled as stupid or unintelligent, experiencing frustration, anger, shame, etc. at not being able to understand academic concepts, not being included with peers, etc. When such a child is made part of group therapy, it gives them the room to realize that they are not alone and that other children too are facing similar issues. The psychologist conducting the group therapy sessions can also help the children with SLD understand that they are not to blame for it, but that they can make small efforts at striving towards enhancing their learning abilities. Being equipped with effective strategies and acknowledgement of little steps of progress while getting and giving positive feedback to other children with SLD in the group, group therapy could be a rewarding and effective intervention for children with SLD.
