Consulted Dr. Prof. G.B. Singh (PhD) (Clinical Psychologist)
I recommend the doctor
( My husband and I work in government departments, and whereas my husband works in a government department in Rajasthan, I work in the Delhi government, and we are a nuclear family with two children who are extremely concerned about the academic achievement of our children because that is the only resource we can give them as they grow up and become independent and get good jobs.
We were totally confused with our daughter who seem to be very intelligent but was not able to concentrate as well as get the marks that he should be getting based on what the teachers used to tell us in every parent teacher meeting. As we live in Gurgoan, we must have gone to at least three different doctors to try to find out the problem but everybody had his own idea of what my daughter's problem is.
We came to Dr. Singh after reading about him on the Internet, I can say with 100% surety that the moment we sat down and we started talking to him we knew that we are in the right hands.
What we thought is Dyslexia, because that is what all the teachers used to keep saying that your daughter has got dyslexia, after all the tests were done we realized was not a dyslexia problem, but something so simple that we wished the other doctors had even made an attempt to check it and help us. Because all the teachers used to say that our daughter has got dyslexia, we had attended many meetings and programmes to help her overcome the problem but everything was so frustrating, because everybody has his own idea about what should be done.
I can honestly say, that after we realized what the actual problem was it was as if a light had gone on for my daughter, and this was very exciting after years of struggling. Things began to make sense to her, and her reading and ability to focus has gone up by almost 4 times. Her mathematics has improved tremendously, and even her private tutors are amazed at the fast progress. My daughter’s ability at mathematics has improved tremendously and even her private tutor is surprised, because she's able to do much more than one hour than she would do with him initially.
The shift from declining effort and scores and results to positive comments and noticeable improvements in all areas of learning happened within the first three months itself, and as a mother I know how difficult that is for any normal child to achieve, and specially the child like our daughter who had started to think that there is a definite problem with her. She also began to realise that she does not have a disability, and it in a way empowered her to use her natural strength to make learning easier.
Even as a mother I have learnt so much over the last three months, that I have stopped constantly irritating my daughter, and demanding that she study because I know now that she will study but she has to be given the right environment as well as the freedom to select what she wants to study and in which manner.
Over the last few months she has changed from a shy quiet girl who was unsure of her own abilities into a balanced and happy girl who now realizes that there is nothing wrong with her. As a mother I am also very happy to see the change in her demeanor in the last few months, and I am also quite satisfied to see her personality really shine the way it should have been right from the beginning. Very slowly but very surely she is now willing to pick up a book to read which she would have never done before and makes an effort to read what is written.
More than anything I think I am just happy to see her being happy and confident also seen her happy to go to school and not worry about what the teachers will say or what the other children will say as a confidence levels of gone up. I think it was worth the time and money to have visited Prof Singh, and sometimes when I discuss with my husband, who still does not agree that these issues exist, and was very apprehensive about getting our daughter checked and assessed, I realised that what are we earning for. For who all are we going to leave whatever we are earning, if we cannot help our own children. What is the use of working and continuing to make fixed deposits when your daughter is not even able to get 50% marks in school. Visiting Prof Singh has totally changed my mindset at least two words learning issues as well as towards children who do not show their full potential, because I think it is we as parents who are to blame and not the children. )
