As a continuation of its tireless efforts, the Hope Centre is holding a free screening event for parents who feel that there may be some problems with their child’s speech, posture, reading, writing or memory.
This should come as welcome relief to parents who suspect their child may be struggling in any of the above areas, and would like a professional opinion on the condition of their child. Hope will also be conducting diagnostics to check if any child is on the spectrum or displaying sings of ADHD, or any other kind of disability or disorder of any kind.
What is free screening?
Free screening means assessing your child to see if he/she has any kind of disability or disorder or delay in milestones. Since there is no lab or blood test to tell if your child may have a developmental delay, speech or physical problem the screening will help tell, if your child needs to see a specialist for further tests.
What happens in free screening?
The child gets diagnosed to find out if s/he has any developmental delay, speech, physical or psychological problem.
How does it help?
When any disability is not recognized early, it becomes difficult for children to get the help they need. Many children have delays in language and/or other areas. But, less than half of the children with problems are identified before starting school. During this time, if the child could have received help for these problems he/she may have entered school more ready to learn.
Who needs screening?
Children who show hyperactivity and attention problems, have problems with reading, spellings and retaining matter, writing problems like illegible writing, children showing delay in speech and delay in physical milestones are the people who need screening.
What are HOPE doing?
The Hope Centre is conducting a simple diagnosis for the children to find out whether they need any sort of assistance in the 4 major areas of speech, physiotherapy, psychological and educational.
They are also conducting IQ testing and checking to diagnose for any kind of disability or disorder.
The event is open to all. Call the Hope Centre to book a slot. All details are in the flyer above.
