In a dynamic and complex world the modern, thinking parents face a complex task, how to realize potential and provide opportunities for the harmonious development of the child and his successful and full-fledged future.
Life in the aggressive environment of modern cities often leads to the emergence of various somatic and neuropsychic diseases that cause abnormalities, disturbances or slowdown in healthy growth of a child. Parents and relatives frequently are unable to assess adequately the dynamics of a child development, in connection with which precious time is wasted, especially at an early age, when the correctional work of specialists is most effective and fruitful.
Understanding by parents of the need for timely diagnosis of the level of psychophysical and speech development of the child by educators and psychologists is an important component of successful assistance.
Correctional and educational work – is a system of special pedagogical activities aimed not only at overcoming or decreasing the developmental disability but also at formation of personality as a whole. Correction and compensation for abnormal development cannot occur spontaneously. A child with features of psychophysical development feels the need of timely and comprehensive systematic pedagogical influence much more than the normally developing one. The earlier the targeted correctional and educational work with a child begins the more significant achievements are reached in his development.
