Good day,

Your child is being assessed for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and or associated conditions (medical, learning, emotional). The initial assessment requires a 1 hour appointment. Arrival 15 minutes before consultation for completion of administration forms and weighing and measuring of your child is crucial so that we can spend as much time with the assessment as possible.

It is preferred that both parents attend the appointment unless unavoidable circumstances prevent this.

You will be asked to complete forms to provide information on how your child functions in different areas of life. Should you have any previous reports or assessments from teachers or medical practitioners, please let us have a copy. Timeous completion of all forms and submission 1 week before appointment will allow a more efficient use of time during the consultation.

Please complete the forms which are accessible from the website link for new assessments and follow up appointments.

A non-refundable deposit of R1000 must be paid into the banking details provided below within 48 hours of scheduling the appointment, and proof of payment sent through via e-mail to balance of R1800 is payable at the time of consultation.Please note that this assessment is strictly limited to an hour. Should parents require further time to discuss additional queries, these would be covered in a follow-up consultation at an additional cost.

Getting appropriate treatment for ADHD is very important. There may be very serious negative consequences for persons with ADHD who do not receive adequate treatment. These consequences can include low self-esteem, social and academic failure, substance abuse, and a possible increase in the risk of antisocial and criminal behavior.

Depending on the assessment outcome, a one month follow up appointment will be made to assess treatment or review additional tests. A follow up feedback email is encouraged from parents and or teachers after one week of treatment.

Treating ADHD in children requires regular follow-ups at least twice a year. These follow up visits will be limited to a 30 minute time period at a cost of R1100. This will need to be settled at time of consultation and claimed back from your Medical Aid for reimbursement.

An assessment report will be compiled and emailed to all relevant role players in the holistic management of your child. Should you not wish for the report to be emailed to role players, please inform us before the appointment.

If a diagnosis is given which requires a repeat script, you will be required to pay an amount of R110 per script monthly. Original scripts are required by law at any pharmacy. We may write up to 5 months post- dated scripts, but they will only supply you with 1 month of medication at a time. Scripts can be posted to you should you live out of the Upper Highway area. However, postage of scripts will be at your own risk, as we are unable to guarantee timeous delivery due to the inefficient postage service. All scripts must be paid for before they are released and can be paid via EFT. Scripts must be requested via our website and you will receive a confirmation response from our Practice. Should you not receive a response, please consider your request undelivered and contact our rooms.

Chronic forms can be obtained from your medical aid. These forms must be provided by the patient to our rooms to be completed. Please note that there will be a charge which may be claimed back from your medical aid depending on your plan and medical aid.

Learning disabilities (The Basics)

What are learning disabilities?Learning disabilities are problems that cause a child to have trouble learning. For example, a child might have problems learning to read, write, or do math. Learning disabilities do not have anything to do with how smart a child is. Children with learning disabilities can be just as smart or smarter than other children their age. But they have brain differences that make it hard for them to learn, remember, and use information.


What is dyslexia?Dyslexia is a problem that makes it hard for a child to learn to read. Dyslexia has nothing to do with how smart a child is. Children with dyslexia can be just as smart as or smarter than other children their age. But they have brain differences that affect the way they process written words. They have trouble understanding the connection between letters (or groups of letters) and sounds.
