Centre for Assessment and Therapy (OPD Unit)

The centre for Assessment and Therapy (popularly known as OPD unit) is the entry point for the children with special needs. The focus is to assess the problems of the child (diagnose the disability and its severity). The objective is to address the problems of the children through appropriate intervention programs.

Assessment includes consultation and diagnosis of the problem reported along with psychiatric, psychological, special educational, speech and language, sensory integration and occupational guidance.

It also conducts some tests which includes screening tests of Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention deficit hyperactive disorder; Educational tests comprising Intelligence Quotient, Specific Learning Disability, Personality tests consisting of Thematic Apperception Test, Children’s Apperception Test, Rorschach Ink Blot Test and many more psychological tests.
