Q.

Special needs schools

My 12 year old son is ADHD and currently attending a remidial primary school. I am battling to find a remedial high school where he will be able to obtain his matric. We live in the south of jhb and the closest schools are in meyerton and germiston. We are a middle class family and other options are way out of our budget. Is there somewhere I could get a comprehensive list of remedial high schools which offer matric. I have applied to the schools in meyerton and germiston but have only made it on to the waiting list which is a small step forward, but doesn''t really help my much. My other gripe is that ''special needs'' schools cater for mentally and physically disabled as well as learning impared and ADHD. Is it possible to locate a school which is specifically for ADHD?

Dear Carla,

unfortunately there is a great shortage of remedial high schools country wide. You can try contacting the department of education and ask for your district's department, they will be able to assist you with a list of schools both remedial and typical who have remedial assistance.

Best of luck,
