Dr. Nasreen Banu [2] | K. Yashoda


Abstract: Present study was taken up to address the Psycho-social behavioural problems of Academically backward (Secondary school) children. The sample consisted of 150 children (6th 9th class) in the age group of 12-17 years attending ZPHS (Zilla Parishad high school) from the operational villages (5) of Moinabad mandal, RR district, Hyderabad. Checklists developed by the unit (AICRP-Child Development) were used to find out the Psycho-social behavioural problems of Academically backward children. Based on the results, Counselling sessions (Individual & Group) were conducted for a period of 10 months (involving school teachers), for the selected sample and separate sessions were conducted for the mothers too. The post test scores indicated a positive impact, reflecting the effectiveness of the Counselling programme.
