15 year old Anirudh(Name Changed), suffers from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). His parents initially could not diagnose his condition and thus were absolutely clueless about his attitude. They always considered him as a spoilt brat. Luckily for him, his father took him to a hospital and was able to ascertain his condition. His attention definiteness caused him to fair poorly in education and thus was removed from school.
Aaina identified him and took him under its observation. He was enrolled in State Learning Centre, Aaina, Bhubaneswar, were his treatment began. We initially tried psychosocial therapy to help him concentrate and focus in whatever task he is indulged in. We got him engaged in preacademic activities, like “Color matching, “Letter Matching”, Object Matching and painting to make him able to focus and learn basic non academic skill that is prerequisite to academic learning. With our efforts and his will power, he is now able to play indoor games like chess, which was never his cup of tea. With these encouraging results, we are hopeful to enroll him in a preschool to resume his education.
We believe in bringing about, small yet a sure change.
