Topic: Emotional difficulties in Children and Adolescents
Assessing the emotional well-being of every school-going child and adolescent is vital in order to offer timely support and intervention for emotional and behavioral difficulties. If not checked, such difficulties may impede academic, personal, and social growth, resulting in a lifetime of challenges for such individuals.
