The Compass Team, a six year old organization, has been working with schools, teachers, parents and corporate executives to make positive changes in the society through specific programmes that have a bearing on their performance. The programme that started off from schools has today spread to higher levels like colleges and work places. From providing screening, identification and remediation services to students for a variety of problems related to academics and behaviour, speech language and communication and nutrition, our programmes now cover a broader area incorporating adolescent issues in children, managing exam and general anxiety, stress and depression, effective parenting, faculty development and assessment of health of corporate executives, apart from many relevant social issues like family counseling. Our outreach programmes, seminars and workshops, headed by eminent professionals in their respective fields, address all these issues in a scientific manner to benefit the society.
We have screened more than 30,000 students across Kerala and the response from schools and parents has been highly encouraging, considering its social impact and the relevance in the present day context.
