Prayatna Centre for Educational Assessment & Intervention was established in 1998 in Bangalore to provide assessment & remedial support for children with learning difficulties. In 2001, a branch was set up in Chennai and a second centre was opened in Bangalore in 2013. The centre uses innovative teaching aids to enhance children’s literacy and numeracy skills and to make learning an enjoyable experience. The centre is staffed by a competent and empathetic team of psychologists who are trained to impart academic skills and nurture confidence in every child. At Prayatna Centre for Educational Assessment & Intervention , we believe that every child is capable of learning.
The centre works with children who struggle to learn in mainstream classrooms. Even though we do not label children at Prayatna Centre for Educational Assessment & Intervention, we cater to the needs of those who have difficulties typically associated with conditions like dyslexia, ADHD and mild forms of autism. Using attractive learning aids, children acquire the skills of reading, spelling, syntax, vocabulary and basic math. We also help children with issues of inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity regulate their behaviour by creating personalized behaviour modifications programs.
