Children with Special Needs

Children, Youth and Families Foundation (CYFF), is providing specialized professional services to children and adolescents suffering from Developmental Disorders and having special needs . Foundation’s professional staff helps these children and their families  to cope effectively with their disorders, especially learning disability and other allied problems.

Many children may face these problems and difficulties during the course of their development. Some of these are serious enough to hamper or even retard the smooth and optimal development of the child. A few examples of these disorders are ADHD, Autism, Behavioral or Conduct Disorders, Learning Disabilities, Borderline Mental Retardation, Fears, Phobias, Anxiety and Depression. CYFF helps in  early identification of these disorders for effective prevention and treatment by mental health workers. Besides Psychologists, Special Education teachers and  Psychiatrists also help parents and teachers of children having these problems.  As developmental disorders require more of psycho-social and educational interventions rather than psychotherapy and psychiatric intervention.

CYFF is making a significant   contribution in providing such services along with developing an indigenous model for Pakistan to deliver services, provide  education and develop community awareness programs to help children, adolescents and families who are at risk of, or are suffering from different kinds of developmental disorders.
