@ ani,

I meant to ask, which Area you are looking for?


anividya 2011-01-27 16:55:26


I' m based out of Velachery though I can meet any recommended CP or Therapist anywhere in the city. I am also hoping to touch-base with parents of ADHD children who have seen encouraging results using some therapy/therapist. Thanks in advance.

@ PPrr,

 Do you have any personal experiance at Pebbles - chromepet or any feedback from who has attended session there. How is it?

Any inputs will help



empathy 2011-02-24 18:52:49



the center and person you mentioned in chromepet and arumbakkam is a occupational therapist and not a psychologist.

There is a child guidance clinic run in childs trust hospital consisting of peadiatricians, neurospsychologist etc which will be of immense help rather than the above places.





pprr 2011-02-25 09:15:54


As for as Pebbles is concerned it give only occupational theraphy. I heard it is good.I went to child trust hospital for my kid. But one has to keep on giving activities to kids at home too. But if u really want a good special educator I'll suggest Ms.Srilatha in kottivakkam. She is too good, very patient and her approach is very good. I left her because her place is too far from mine.

There is one Ms.Sivakumari in Beasnt Ngr.Again one Ms. Girija Shashank in Kilpauk. I never been to them but i heard they are all good. Dr.Virudhagirinathan is also an excellent person in this regard. But they all access your child before taking.

Even Vidyasagar in Kotturpuram work with children who have ADHD.They may also be able to provide you details of a good therapist/CP.

Hope this helps!


pprr 2011-02-26 11:44:39



But Vidyasagar is a special school like mentally challenged children. Yes they do offer OT. MERF in R.A puram also deals with OT programs  it seems.

hi what kind of srvice u need Occupational therapy or speech therapy or spl education or do u want all under one roof? im a speech therapist myself, let me know


srilakshmi 2011-03-10 20:41:50



First of all at FIVE, it is our luck to get good and dedicated therapist. I got one Ms.Preethi, She is very edcated and gr8 attitude. Evn though attendinfg around 15-20 students individually,she never ever threw a sign of dullness or diinterest in my son.I liked her attitude. Moreover, her mother is a special educator and they run a school wiht few students at their home. Her mother goes for home visit also. Regarding FIVE, they work good, but it is their business. Hope u understand.

Preethi is resigning from FIVE. I sure can say the it is a loss to FIVE. If any one wants to talk to her or get her service. let me know I can give her, since hermother is  SPL educator , she can assist in many ways.

Let me know. I ll give her No.




vijinarsi 2011-03-11 09:48:35


@ srilakshmi,

 Is preethi a speech therapist of Occupational Therapist. Where is her residence?

Can you pass on her no. in my PT inbox to me if is it not possible to share here. Have added you as friend.





anividya 2011-03-11 11:53:25



I'ld also like to have preethi's number... Am trying to plan something for a school I work in. So would like to pm her or call her.

priyakmr, Check out  APL Global in Thoraipakkam. One of our family friends adhd kid goes there. They are a regular school but have separate classes for special needs children.


priyakmr 2011-04-11 11:04:52


thanks nj.


cyb 2011-08-05 23:50:47


Dear priyakmr,

did you try that APL Global in Thoraipakkam? As my child also was diagnosed with ADHD, I would like to get the input of that school.

Re Pebbles, My child is going to the center at the moment and I am on the looking out of a more genuine place than this one. If anyone has experience with an OT center at the South of Chennai, please let me know. 







VL 2011-08-06 14:43:05


@cyb, which center of pebbles do you go - Chormepet or Arumbakkam? May i know where you stay? I am taking my kid to Chromepet Pebble. It is a OK center comparitively

What is your feedback? How long have you been taking your kid?  From your post it looks like you are wanting to change, any specific reason?
