Krishna Nursing Home

Here at Krishna Nursing Home, we provide counselling, training and treatment for children by our mental health team consisting of Psychiatrists and Psychologists.

We conduct clinical services at school, hospital; orientation and awareness programs for parents, teachers to cover educational difficulties and behaviour problems.

Our purpose is to empower students to see themselves as confident, competent individuals who can, with hard work and the support of our team, achieve their goals and go on to be contributing members of society.

Our child care unit is led by the adage that we can empower the child by empowering their parents and educators. We strive to provide the right kind of assessment to ensure individualized treatment

We operate a highly structured, transparent and accountable treatment process. And value the feedback of the child’s parents.

Remedial program for Learning Disablity

Remedial programs are designed to close the gap between what a student knows and what he’s expected to know. At Krishna Nursing Home, this is done by using research-based, empirically proven teaching methods such as the Orton Gillingham approach to teach students. Once the child is enrolled in remedial training sessions, initially the progress is seen in form of improved motivation to study, decrease in resistance to study, increased sitting span. Depending on the severity of learning disability, it may take few months to see improvement in spelling, reading, mathematics, scores in class.

Remedial sessions are conducted at the student’s pace of learning. Our remedial programme involves:
  • Individualized program, worksheets
  • Transparency
  • Instill insight
  • Immediate feedback
  • Positive reinforcement
  • Parent Management Training
  • Keeping the parents, teachers updated with the student’s progress
  • Classes based on the principle of Response to Intervention

Sometimes other problems co-occur with learning disability: They may be: Inattention, Hyperactivity, School refusal, Behavioral problems at home/school, Poor motivation, Poor self esteem and Borderline intelligence. Their assessment and treatment is also crucial to ensure successful training. Here we employ Multisensory, Structured, Sequential and individualized treatment process focusing on the child’s strength to improve his weakness. We utilize customized remedial material exclusive to Krishna Nursing Home.
