ON THIS PAGE WE HAVE ADDED SOME WEBSITES AND CONTACTS THAT COULD BE RELEVANT TO PARENTS WHO NEED ADDITIONAL SUPPORT FOR THEIR CHILDREN AS WELL AS SOME GENERAL INFORMATION THAT IS RELEVANT TO ALL PARENTS

*These are all run in a private capacity and thus the cost of assessments and therapies are at the parent's expense.  Parents who would like to use these services at public hospitals such as Red Cross or Groote Schuur can ask the school for a letter of referral.

Before spending your time and money on various assessments, the first step should always be to have your child's eyes (vision) and hearing checked in order to eliminate these factors.
