With branches in Franchhoek, Durbanville, Somerset West and Worcester, 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.
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, and Educational Specialists.
When my son was diagnosed with autism, I really didn’t know anyone with a child with autism. I didn’t know people with autism (or so I thought). It’s a very isolating and confusing place to be. This is one of the many reasons I share our autism journey. I don’t want any other family to feel that they are alone out there. I want them to know there is someone who they can ask questions of, someone who will do their best to help.
Parents occasionally write to tell me their child was just diagnosed with autism, and in searching the Web for insights they found my blog. They often express fear and sometimes sorrow, and ask if I have any advice.
Most of all, remember that your love and acceptance for your child is what matters most.
