Are you tossing and turning at night, unable to stop worrying about your child’s progress at school? Restless over poor reading, lack of focus, and difficulties with writing and spelling? You’re not alone; many parents share your concerns when their children struggle academically.

Questions like, “Will they struggle forever?”, “Why is my child misunderstood?”, and “What can I do to help my child?” might be keeping you up at night. Additionally, you may be concerned about your child:

– Struggling to make friends or facing bullying
– Having difficulties with sports, hand-eye coordination, and team mentality
– Falling behind in reading, writing, and spelling
– Exhibiting a short attention span and lack of focus or concentration
– Disliking school and resisting homework or studying
– Appearing clumsy or uncoordinated, frequently dropping or bumping into things
– Feeling shy, lonely, angry, or frustrated, and having trouble managing their emotions
– Struggling with poor memory and recalling information (but possessing a photographic memory for things they enjoy)

If these worries resonate with you, Guide Little Minds can help. We understand how challenging it can be for both the child and the parent, and we know that neither of you is to blame. The learning process itself needs improvement.

You need answers to these questions, and you need them now!

Guide Little Minds Programme goes beyond mere tutoring or medication. We embrace all treatments and therapies grounded in scientific evidence. We focus on understanding your child’s challenges and unlocking their potential by nurturing their skills, allowing them to excel in the areas they love.

From exam stress to high-performance, Guide Little Minds discovers EVERYONE’S potential.

Our unique, tailored programme can radically transform the lives of children dealing with autism, ADHD, tantrums, learning difficulties, hyperactivity, and obsessive behaviour. Secure your child’s future by seeking help from one of the most successful child health therapies over the past 80 years.

Here are the three reasons most therapies fail (and how we can fix them):


Your child is unique, and brain development and learning difficulties are more complex than any other medical condition. The brain requires an expert with specialised training and experience.


Too often, we see children struggling with learning, behaviour, and self-esteem issues despite years of medication. Unfortunately, parents have received short-sighted advice and treatment without investing time in a proper assessment by an expert. This approach is costly in the long term and delays the vital help your child needs.


A quick fix, one-size-fits-all solution is not in your child’s best interest. Parents become frustrated and stop the medication when they do not see improvement. Often, the wrong medication at high dosages is prescribed, leading to unwanted side effects.

Guide Little Minds’ holistic and personalised assessment process is a unique programme that identifies your child’s challenges and provides the appropriate treatment.

We believe in the power of partnership. To achieve the best results, you, as a parent, want only the best, and our Guide Little Minds assessment programme was designed with this in mind.

Too often, children and families spend thousands on unnecessary tests and therapies without addressing the root cause of the problem.

Our life-changing, holistic intervention develops key learning and development skills for children and families dealing with:

– Poor learning skills – reading, writing, and spelling
– Lacking focus and organisational skills
– Suffering from stress and loss of emotional control

Children with challenges like reading difficulties are often misunderstood – labelled as unintelligent or lazy. Our unique assessment process clears up these misperceptions by empowering you to embark on the right path towards the thriving future you desire for your child.

Our approach identifies all the issues, giving you confidence that you’ve taken a significant step towards solving this critical problem.

The Guide Little Minds assessment programme provides the guidance and roadmap to address the root cause of your child’s challenges.

We “hold your hand” with support and treatment throughout the journey.

Our online assessments measure your child’s difficulties using world-class standard rating and assessment scales on an ongoing basis to ensure the proper treatment and therapy is applied. We offer online assessment portals for both parents and teachers.

The Guide Little Minds assessment programme is a unique initiative that drives essential skills development by focusing on specific brain areas with executive functions. This process combines educational, behavioural, physical, and medical interventions based on over twenty years of helping children and parents achieve success for their families. With our Guide Little Minds assessment programme, the journey can be manageable and rewarding.

Dr Flett

Specialist Paediatrician MBChB, MRCP(UK), FCP(SA).

My medical journey started almost 30 years ago as a General Practitioner in a Small Town, Waterfall, not far from the Hospital I now work in; Hillcrest Private Hospital. During this time as a GP dealing with young families and their precious new off-spring, a “Paediatric call” was heard loudly. Along the way I travelled with my family to the U.K, to specialise in Paediatrics, gaining the British Paediatric Specialist qualification, MRCP(UK) Paediatrics within two years. I was fortunate enough to work in centres of excellence like Great Ormond Street children’s Hospital and The Hammersmith Mother and Child Hospital, gaining top-level experience and learning from leading experts in children’s care and development. On returning to South Africa, my journey continued in the Department of Paediatrics, at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg. In 1998 I gained my South African Paediatric Specialist Qualification, FCP(SA) Paediatrics. After spending time as a consultant at the Johannesburg General Hospital, the yearning to return to Durban grew stronger, and in 2000 I returned to Durban to enter private practice. I enjoy all aspects of Paediatrics and child health care. I get a real buzz interacting with parents and their children, solving problems no matter how small they appear. I manage babies’ care as small as 500g and 25 weeks at birth and on the other end “children” over 90 kg and 25 years old. I have a strong passion for managing all aspects of schooling-related problems. These include child and adolescent: anxiety, depression, self-esteem, conduct problems, developmental problems, learning problems, and the complete range of ADHD associated challenge Get Expert Help At Guide Little Minds ADHD Centre, we offer an Online ADHD Test for you to know or confirm if you or a loved one happens to have ADHD.
