Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

Our program is designed to help develop positive parenting practices and behavioural management strategies for parents who have children diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

We help parents and youth by providing:

  • Effective communication strategies 

  • Behaviour management strategies

  • Stress and anger management strategies

  • Problem solving and coping skills

  • Esteem building skills

  • Information on medications

  • Consultations with other health-care professionals

  • Community presentations 

Education sessions

Our family-based services include group education sessions for parents about the neurobiology and characterises of ADHA. We also offer individual/family consultations for families who are enrolled in the education sessions.
