The social and emotional impact of ADHD - 22 Jun 2013
Catherine Radloff — Educational Psychologist - Cape Town, South Africa
I specialise in diagnosing learning problems in the foundation, intermediate and senior phases (Grade 1-12). I believe that early diagnosis and interventions lead to greatly enhanced outcomes for learners who experience barriers to learning.
I have a special interest in learners who experience difficulty with concentration and/or hyperactivity and have extensive experience with ADD/ADHD.
I also provide counselling for adolescents and families. I specialise in parent guidance on the following issues; divorce, dealing with adolescent/child depression, conflict resolution and effective communication.
In terms of my work with adolescents and children I offer therapy for the following:
- Managing ADHD
- Anger and anxiety
- Bereavement and loss
- Chronic illness
- Identity crises
- Peer conflict and bullying
- Poor self-esteem
I work closely with a team of professionals consisting of a Child Psychiatrists, Occupational Therapists, Speech and Language Therapists and a Remedial Specialists.
I completed my Bachelor's degree at the University of Stellenbosch and my Honours in Psychology at the University of Pretoria. Thereafter I obtained an Honours Bachelor of Education as well as a Master's degree in Education from the University of South Africa. All my degrees were obtained with distinction. I am a registered Educational Psychologist with the South African Health Professions Council.
I have more than 12 years of experience in the field of Education. I have worked as an Educational psychologist in a top private school, St Cyprians, for 4 years and have been in private practice since 2013.
