Learning difficulties amongst the school children, particularly those who are in the primary grades, is becoming a serious concern. To effectively address this the Royal College Doctors’ Association (RCDA) conducted a workshop on learning difficulties in primary school children, identification & management of such problems, for the teachers of the Primary section of Royal College, on 4th June.
Dr (Mrs) Swarna Wijethunge and Dr (Mrs) Sudarshi Senevirathne, consultants in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry, participated as resource personnel, while Dr. Miyuru Chandradasa, senior lecturer in Psychiatry conducted the programme.
Over 60 Teachers from the primary section of Royal College participated, actively shared their experiences on students with learning disabilities and discussed with resource personnel the ways of managing such problems.
The RCDA extend their sincere thanks to the Principal of Royal College Mr B A Abeyrathne, Deputy Principal of the Primary section Sister Disna Siyaguna for their courtesy and Dr Miyura Chandradasa who coordinated and organized this workshop on behalf of the RCDA.
