Children are especially vulnerable to mental health problems. These manifest as behaviour and emotional problems in school and at home. Many chronic and severe psychiatric illnesses have their onset in childhood. Early diagnosis and treatment can improve outcomes for academic performance, and social interactions.

Our team of psychiatrist, and psychologist have worked extensively with children at Delhi, Mumbai and Bangalore. We provide diagnosis supported by standard psychological tests. Comprehensive treatment includes behaviour therapy and medication when necessary.

School related problems are a large source of stress to the child and family. This results in academic deterioration or poor scholastic performance in the child. The Pathfinder Team provides a psychological analysis of strengths and deficits for an individualised management plan.

Comprehensive career guidance analyses career factors in greater depth.

  • The individual may have or lack certain abilities, but what are they really interested in?

  • What would motivate them to continue in the field despite challenges?

  • Will they function well in a team or will they be better off working independently? Personality determines this to a great extent.

  • How will they perform and progress in their chosen career? Much depends on intelligence and learning.

Comprehensive aptitude assessment answers all these questions.
