We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today. -Stacia Tauscher
To a parent, her/his child is the world! Every parent likes to give the best he can do for it, including child care. Child care in today’s world is no child play. Thanks to advances in medicine and technology, we have ample choices and proven methods to help those children who need help. By helping a child, we are not only creating a succesful human being but also happy families
At VIMHANS hospital, after several years of experience we observed two serious short comings that stand as hurdles for a seamless treatment– one, parents’ hesitation to enter a Psychiatric centre, which is seen as a blot. Second, the allied services like speech therapy, special educator services, occupational therapy, are scattered in town. Parents heave a big relief if these services are under one roof. With these points in mind, to reach out to every needy child, we designed a concept that removes these hurdles – thus, Indla’s Child Guidance Clinic (ICGC) was created – a novel idea, exclusively for the care of the children. Although we faced administrative difficulties in getting together all services together, we succeeded at the end!
We believe, that in all child psychiatric disorders, the earlier the disorder is diagnosed and earlier the treatment begun, better is the prognosis and outcome for the child.
We established ICGC, Vijayawada and then we decided to expand and open another centre in Mumbai
ICGC, Indla’s Child Guidance Clinic with two full fledged centres, Vijayawada and Mumbai is now a reality..
A centre that offers comprehensive care for children and adolescents, a centre that thrives to provide best quality care under one roof.
At ICGC, we follow treatment protocols of the highest standard . We provide an environment that is child friendly, unlike a usual hospital atmosphere. We provide all that is necessary for comprehensive care, from medication to parental counseling to therapies.We also conduct workshops in important but often ignored areas like parenting, life skills development. We have our own program that we have developed at our centre and has shown fruitful results in adolescents called as “Sampoorna Vidyarthi Program” which is a holistic program aimed at overall development of the child.
We provide assessment, remediation, counseling all under one roof. We aim to cut down on appointment times, waiting period as we truly value your time.
Our aim at ICGC is to help and reach out to maximum number of children and adolescents and spread happiness in families
