Welcome to Saraswati Learning Center!
Early Diagnosis of a delay or a disability in a child is of utmost importance. Diagnosis and assessment is not done to ‘label’ a child but to prevent further delays, increasing the severity of the disability in the child. Therefore, it is very important for parents to take the initiative and do the assessment as it helps to identify the strength of the child. Only when we focus on the strength of the child will the child be able to achieve his best and overcome his difficulties. Keeping this in mind, our centre provides the facility for diagnosis and assessment of infants and children.
What is diagnosis and assesment?
Diagnosis and assessment is done using formal and informal testing methods. Formal testing is done using standardadized tests like WISC, Standard Binet Intellegence Scale or Progressive Matrix. Informal testings are conducted through observations for a certain period of time. These tests are to identify the strengths and difficulties the child is facing in school and day to day life. Through these assassements we are able to measure the childs level of develepoment in the areas of physical, intellectual, language, emotional and social (PILES).
Who is involved in the diagnosis and assessment process?
Our multi –disciplinary team of therapists, clinical psychologists and paediatrician can diagnose infants and children with developmental delays. Parents and primary care givers also play an important role in the process of assessments.

Role of Parents / Primary Care Givers
This information is very important because parents spend the maximum time with their children and play a key role in the childs life. The information given by them will validify the observations made by the school during the assessment process.
What is the process of assessment and diagnosis at SLC?
If a parent feels that a child needs help and are unable to find a right place for help, then SLC provides the option of assessment for diagnosis. The children have to go through an assessment with our team for two week. Post assessment, the report along with the diagnosis of the child will be given to the parents.
What is the process of assessment to take admission in SLC?
If you want to take admission at SLC, then the child has to go through a trial for three days where they will be assessed by the clinical psychologist and the head of special needs educator. This helps us to determines the level of the child and which class group is appropriate for him/her. This also identifies whether the child is ready to enter the school system or needs therapy services first. To know more, contact us
