COVID-19 NOTIFICATION: Psychologists are recognized by government as Essential Service Providers - we will continue with our practise via 'telemedicine' (Zoom, Skype etc) sessions. If deemed necessary due to specific reasons, face-to-face appointments can be arranged. Please email your NDC Psychologist, Paediatrician, Neurologist or Therapist directly, should you need to discuss this.

The Neurodiversity Centre was founded in order to provide multi-disciplinary assessment, support and intervention to children, adolescents and adults presenting with neurodevelopmental needs and challenges. We work together as a team, and seek to collaborate with families in order to assess all of your child's needs
The NDC is made up of a dedicated team of Clinical- and Educational Psychologists, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Adult Psychiatry, Developmental Paediatrics, Speech and Language Therapy, Educational Specialists, Administrators and Practice Management. Naturally, we rely most heavily on the parents of our children as key members of our team.
Our multi-disciplinary team of experienced health professionals includes Psychologists, a Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist, a Speech Language and Hearing Therapist and a Developmental Peadiatrician. All are registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa, and have additional specialised training in Social Communication Disorders.
We are excited to collaborate with the following amazing partners that aim to support individuals and families with Neurodiversities.
You and your child may refer yourselves to our team, or you may be referred by your consultant Paediatrician, Psychologist, Psychiatrist or Educator. For self-referral, you can make use of our referral form below. The most suitable clinician will then be allocated to your care, and one of our Practice Administrators will contact you to set up a first appointment. Once a first appointment has been confirmed, we will send you some paperwork to complete prior to the first appointment. After the first appointment, the clinician will be able to advise and discuss with you what further assessments may be required, and can also give you some indication of the various pathways to intervention that may apply.
Kindly complete the below fields as this will allow our Practice Manager to process your request as soon as possible.

The same rates apply for telephonic communication and consultations, email correspondences and any special reports/letters requested by the client or family of the client. This includes any extensive or exhaustive communication, outside of the standard communication required to schedule appointments or training attendance. Team-based key-working requires multi-faceted communication, which does take time.
