The counseling program was initiated the academic year of 2016 and since then it is providing individual and group therapeutic interventions for students struggling with emotional and behavioral difficulties. Therapy helps with the child’s state of mind, building on their coping mechanism and facilitating a positivechange in the child. Direct and indirect counseling services are helping students develop social, emotional and behavioral skills to optimize their potentials.
The children who attend schools such as Educo’s, come from extremely vulnerable circumstances. Growing up in an environment of lack, with parents who are struggling to make ends meet compounded by the early exposure to negative influences has an effect on the children’s mental health and emotional well-being.
In addition, students in our pre primary section due to the lack of stimulating home environment demonstrate several developmental delays. A preventive approach aims to identify students in pre primary showing significant fine motor, gross motor and sensory delays. Students receive an individualized intervention plan that focuses on areas of development they need help in through repeated rehearsals and practice of skills. Further, students with significant gaps in learning and poor academic performance and suspected to have a learning disability are provided with appropriate interventions. The team also works with all students on issues of social and emotional importance that they encounter in their day to day life. This training better equip students to become confident and self-aware individuals.
A comprehensive program of counseling and special education helps in inculcating greater sensitivity and awareness amongst the teachers. It also helps boost student morale, improve learning outcomes and contribute towards the holistic development of children.
The counseling team has assisted in the development of a robust classroom management guideline process that addresses expected behaviours for students in school, and the use of consequences to facilitate an internalization of the same. The consequences are constructive in nature and in no way demean a student. The guidelines built on our Golden Rules the core of our value system expects students to identify when they demonstrate an undesirable behaviour, will serve as building blocks of their personality and character.
