Amino acid replacement therapy

Good day My son was evaluated by an educational psychologist and one of the recommendations was amino acid replacement. The one she gave me is far from where I live so I wanted to check if you know any in my area. I live in Centurion Pretoria and it would be ideal to get someone who is close by. Also recommended were remedial classes as he seems to be 2 years behind with academics. I do not want to take him out of his current school and his teachers also recommend that he doesn't and that we get a remedial teacher who will teach him part time at the school or he can go where they are based. Do you have any recommendations in this regard for someone who is in Centurion or closer. Your assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Please consult Medpages for a psychiatrist. I cannot "advertise" here. It is also important to evaluate and confirm your child's diagnosis prior to starting any treatment. Learner support (which may include remedial classes) will be good.
