Children’s Developmental Program

 

Psychologists and staff work to improve the children’s  wellbeing in three ways.

  1. Children are assessed and evaluated on their development and intelligence according to the Individual Development Plan (IDP). This comprises 3 groups.
  1. Children at risk: Children who have had sub-standard nutrition and are physicallyunder-developed for their  age. This includes children who are prone to illness.
  2. Special children: Children  with confirmed  nutritional and physical deviations from the norm  for their age,  as well as children with chronic health problems , diseases and AIDS.
  3. Normal children: Children who have normal nutritional and are properly developed for their age.

 

  1. If there is uncertainty about a child’s physical or intellectual development or if there seems to be a need of special stimulation or for an individualized learning plan, the psychologist can bring the child for   evaluation or repeat the intelligence evaluation with a clinical psychologist. The results will then determine the appropriate plan of action to be taken to help the child.

 

  1. Adjust behavior of children with behavioral or developmental problems such as aggression, restlessness , disobedience, difficulty adapting to society etc, by working with the developmental staff.
