Dear Desarie,
From your post I am not certain whether your children have always behaved this way or if it is since the move to Joburg. If it is since the move, it could just be an adjustment period. If this has always been the case it may be beneficial to see an educational psychologist to determine why the written work is not done. If there is only a problem with written work it is unlikely to be related to ADD.
Kind regards,
Delia
