ADHD schools in Pretoria

Finding ADHD schools in Pretoria is often a last resort for parents with children who have been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD. They have more than likely been told that their child no longer can function within a mainstream school and needs to be sent to an ADHD school or an alternative school in Pretoria. For most parents this is seen as the end of the road in terms of intervention for their child, Catch Up Kids however does not share this perspective.

Catch Up Kids supports learners from many different backgrounds and needs. We work closely with learners in main stream schools and so called ADHD schools or remedial schools. Catch Up Kids aims to collaborate with learners and teachers so that we can best support learners and their academic needs. At Catch Up Kids each learner receives an individualised plan that supports their needs as well as their academic work load. We understand that some learners need more assistance and guidance when it comes to academic work and can find homework and general class work daunting. Catch Up Kids pairs each individual child with a specialised team of therapists who are experienced in supporting learners with academic challenges, learning struggles and at times even challenging behaviour when it comes to learning. By working closely with a supervisor the team and learner can progress through a program that targets areas of concern and aims to develop skills that will aid in both learning skills in the classroom and in the completion of homework.

Although it is recommended to most parents who have children with ADD or ADHD to move their children to one of the ADHD schools in Pretoria we at Catch Up Kids aim to support the learner from a grass roots level. By doing so we are able to target issues that have perhaps been overlooked or passed on from grade to grade. By working on foundational skills and overcoming the origin of learning challenges we are able to create a strong basis on which more efficient and comprehensive learning strategies can be built. This does not necessarily mean that the child’s entire learning environment needs to change but perhaps that deficit skills are targeted first so that learners can achieve success in a mainstream classroom

At Catch Up Kids we understand that all children learn and experiences the learning process differently. This is true for all learners and not just those who perhaps have an ADD or ADHD diagnosis. We strive to encourage a fun and successful learning environment that centres around learners and their specific needs as well as their individual learning style. Catch Up Kids is definitely a worthwhile pursuit for parents who are seeking a more inclusive alternative to ADD and ADHD treatment and learning.
