Centre for Assessment and Therapy (OPD Unit)

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

Assessment includes consultation and diagnosis of the problem. Based on the assessment the intervention program is planned in the areas of psychological, educational and therapeutic.

It also conducts some tests which include diagnostic tests for 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.
