ADHD schools in Johannesburg

Does your child always struggle to focus in class? Does he or she struggle with planning and organising tasks and activities? Does he or she often lose or forget things? Does he or she fidget with or tap their hands or feet a lot? Does he or she often talk very fast and/or excessively? He or she might be ticking some boxes of what is commonly diagnosed in children today, as ADHD. ADHD (Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder) is a term that can seem daunting for a lot of parents when heard of for the first time. A term that can be even more daunting when being researched and dissected. A term that is often denied as a condition that a child may be dealing with.


ADHD at the basic level, is defined by the American Psychiatric Association in the Diagnostic and Statistical manual of Mental Disorders, as a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity that interferes with functioning or development.


When you as a parent or loved one, learn that this is a daily struggle for your child, you might wonder, “where to now?” What is available for a child diagnosed with ADHD in a country like South Africa? Are there any ADHD schools in Johannesburg? What would ADHD schools in Johannesburg entail? When one searches the word ADHD in Google, you might get a few articles on what ADHD is, and you might also find a few remedial schools in Johannesburg who specialise in working with children with ADHD.


But what would that mean for the family, what would that mean for your child? Do you move your child from their current school into a remedial school claiming to be one of the best ADHD schools in Johannesburg? What would truly be best for your child? What help and support can you provide your child who is dealing with this condition?
