Dear Lulandi,

ADHD has been classified as a disability which means any treatment obtained for your ADHD including life coaches and supplements etc (provided they are prescribed by your diagnosing doctor) can be claimed on your tax return. There is a specific form needed which you can get from the SARS website.

Kind regards,
