Developmental assessment originated in Developed countries over 15 year ago but has more recently gained public recognition in various developing countries, where it is enjoying phenomenal growth as more and more people discover its advantages for themselves. It is sweeping the country covering many aspects of development and personal life from the age group of 2 years to adulthood. DACC thus, helps an individual to adopt a rational approach towards the aptitude, interest and ability, in order to facilitate a suitable vocation, without burdening him/her with over-expectation and social impositions. DACC counselling services address emotional, behavioral and scholastic problems of children and adults. It is common for children to experience occasional problems as they grow and mature. When a child is faced with new situations, demands and expectations, it is common for the child to experience emotional ups and downs characterized by feeling of sadness, fear and anger.

Are you Puzzled and can't make the right decision about your career!! Confused about What Career to Choose?? “Each one of us has a unique and different mix of intelligence types, and commonly the people with the least 'conventional' intelligence (as measured using old-fashioned narrow criteria), actually possess enormous talent - often under-valued, unknown and under-developed.” A person who is strong musically and weak numerically will be more likely to develop numerical and logical skills through music, and not by being bombarded by numbers alone. A person who is weak spatially and strong numerically, will be more likely to develop spatial ability if it is explained and developed by using numbers and logic, and not by asking them to pack a suitcase in front of an audience. A person who is weak bodily and physically and strong numerically might best be encouraged to increase their physical activity by encouraging them to learn about the mathematical and scientific relationships between exercise, diet and health, rather than forcing them to box or play rugby. Many very successful and fulfilled people in life were also judged to be failures at school - brilliant scientists, leaders, writers, entertainers, sports-people, soldiers, humanitarians, healers, religious and political leaders - all sorts of happy, fulfilled remarkable people - they too were judged according to a very narrow definition of what constitutes intelligence. When should you begin the career planning? What are your natural strengths/skill set? What is your area of interest? Which stream should you choose (Science, humanity & commerce, etc)? Which career will take you to the height of excellence? And much more….. According to your natural intelligence/interest & capability, we can help you find answers to above. We guide in developing you through your strengths and make you happy (because everyone enjoys working in their strength areas) - and we also make you gain self-confidence and lift your belief. We help you in finding which intelligences set you possess and which is the most appropriate career for you according to that and your interest, capability and brain type through various standardized psychological tests. This psychological testing method has been extensively used in various developed countries like U.S.A., UK, Germany, France etc since very longtime and are now available to you now in India through D.A.C.C (Developmental Assessment and Counseling Center).
