ADHD Assessment

Hi, my son is 7 and shows so many signs of being overly hyperactive. I would like to have him assessed but im not sure how to go about this. I live in cape town and would realy appreciate it if u can direct me to an institution to have this done for him.
Many thanks.

My son is 15 months old and is very hyper-active, he gets bored very quickly, showing him a book, or watching a cartoon, etc..and he isnt walking yet. Should there be any course for concern?
