Developmental & Neurological Conditions

Children with developmental disorders may learn in special ways, have physical challenges that are different from other children or have behavioural issues that require special attention at home, in school or in the community. Dr Thabo Bisiwe can help enhance the coordination of services for your child with special needs.

He helps families with children of all ages who are experiencing developmental issues and have their own individual needs. He addresses the needs of our patients through inpatient services, consultation services and a variety of clinical programs.

Dr Thabo Bisiwe can assist with:

  • A complete diagnostic evaluation to create an individualized care plan
  • Ongoing, family-centred care that supports patients and families each step of the way
  • Guidance to help families and teachers better manage the behaviour, communication and learning problems of children with developmental disabilities
  • Family support services and resources ranging from parent discussion groups to a special needs toy library
  • Services to help transition children to adult life

Dr Bisiwe will work with you to determine the needs of your child and develop a unique and total care plan. He aims to provide professional care and support for every child with developmental disabilities who enters his practice.
