Dear Rochelle,

An educational psychologist is the ideal professional to assess your daughter; not all have experience in ADD/ADHD though. Please contact ADHASA (Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Support group of Southern Africa) at www.adhasa.co.za or (011) 888 7655. They will be able to recommend a medical professional in your area.

Best wishes,
Delia
