Centre for Child and Adolescents Studies ( CAS )

CAS is a   premier centre of NIDP whose   focal field of study is studies of children and adolescents  childhood disorders. No doubt, problems of children and adolescents have interested parents, teachers and mental health professionals since long. However, scientific study of the issues   like learning   disabilities, psychological difficulties and behavioural disorders has only   recently received some   attention of researchers.  In the developed countries of the world, the progress made in the field is impressive. Unfortunately, this has not so far happened in least developed countries like Pakistan. The situation persists despite a fast growing realization   that children of all places and societies need the kind of attention they are receiving in the developed countries of the world. In fact, children living in   the impoverished socio-economic and political conditions   need it all the more because they are at greater risk of having developmental disorders and problems and there are not available effective ways and facilities to treat and manage such disorders. CAS envisages and aspires to addressing this issue effectively.
