Are there any good schools in Chennai for my son who has ADHD?
Q: I am a mother of a 2 years and 10 months old boy who hasn't developed his speech. He has been found ADHD. We have put him in a play school but there is only slight improvement. Simultaneously he is undergoing occupational therapy. Now we are planning to put him in normal school. Will Montessori type of teaching help my child in improving his speech skills? Please give us information about good Montessori schools in Chennai. What other therapy is required for my son's speech problem?
A:I know of two schools of repute, which give special attention to young children, who may be different or have a problem. One school is NAVADISHA located in Velacheri and run by Ms. Rukmini Ramamchandran. The other school is HEADSTART located in Kottivakkam (beyond Thiruvanmiyur, on the East Coast Road). It is run by Ms. Sudha Mahesh. You may try to get to them on the telephone first. Please do not hesitate to state the special needs of your child.
