Samadhan Goyam is changing the lives of children in meaningful ways
Children with disabilities often miss out on intervention and support they need to help them overcome the challenges linked to their conditions. Helping them to do so is the mission of the Samadhan Goyam-Child Development Center.
Based in Hyderabad, the center lends guidance, coaching and training. Founded by Chelana Jain, a certified clinical psychologist from the Rehabilitation Council of India (RCI), Jain plays multiple roles as goal facilitator, behavior modification therapist and an educational therapist.
Under her guidance, parents get the appropriate assistance for their children. Children with learning disabilities, social and interactive barriers, slow learners and those with other developmental disorders are helped out by a trained and experienced staff. This includes psychologists, remedial trainers and educators.
Shivani Wadhwa, a counseling psychologist and parent consultant, says the goal is to help children achieve their full potential.
It gives immense pleasure to work and help the children who have been sidelined for their limitations. We help children cope with their difficulties and maximize their potential -Shivani Wadhwa, Counseling Psychologist
When parents bring their children to the center, the first step is to do an assessment as this helps identify the strengths and weaknesses. This is then used to design a developmental plan that is age appropriate.
Manisha Jain says her son, who has ADHD, has shown substantial improvement since he joined the centre.
“I got to know about Samadhan Goyam center through Facebook. I was a little apprehensive at first but I am happy that I chose the center for my four-year-old son who has ADHD. With a few months, there has been a clear improvement in his attention span and focus. The care offered is extremely effective and it has become a second home for my child."
Helping children find their pace in a comfortable, stress free manner is also an important part of the process. The various skills taught teach independence and build confidence and self-esteem.
Approaches that parents say have led to significant changes for the better in their kids.
One such parent is Ramesh Choudhary , who calls the center the “best place for children for developing personality skills thanks to the encouraging and friendly mentors ." Another parent, Udaya Chinthakindi says the center has enabled the her child to come up to an "independent level of working. I really appreciate the way the work is carried out there which involves parents and school parallel to their work expertise.”
The center is clearly doing a great job and is changing lives of children and enabling families to lead better lives.
