ONTRAC teen and tween programs
OnTrac is a skills building group, of no more than 10 participants, where the emphasis is on using a collaborative approach to help build skills that are relevant to the lives of older children and adolescents with ADHD and the transitions they face. It involves teaching CBT techniques to improve behaviour in school and home settings, psychoeducation on ADHD, organising/planning/prioritizing, managing distractibility, reducing procrastination, improving communication skills and improving anger/frustration management.
Support groups connect people with a common condition and who meet together to discuss their experiences, share ideas, and provide emotional support for one another. Our support groups are co-facilitated by trained facilitators, at least one with lived experience. As often as possible we strive to have a professional, such as a social worker, psychologist, nurse, education professional, or psychiatrist, in attendance.
Coffee Mornings: 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM;
Telephone Support line and Drop-in Library : Monday-Friday from 9:30 AM to 12:30 PM
