Speech and Language Therapy
Children who struggle to be understood by others, communicate their ideas, understand information or use appropriate social skills could have a speech and/or language delay. Our Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) uses evidence-based practices to help improve your child’s overall communication skills and provide strategies to target these skills in your child’s everyday environment.
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT Psychotherapy)
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for ADD/ADHD is an effective and proven treatment for adolescents and young adults with Attention Deficit Disorders. Our therapists work with techniques developed by Dr. Mary Solanto at the NYU School of Medicine that can counteract the daily effects of ADD/ADHD and lead to better functioning at school, home and work. Our therapists can also use CBT to treat the anxiety and depression symptoms that people with ADD/ADHD often develop. We are also able to provide a specialized form of CBT for the Obsessive-Compulsive symptoms associated with Tourette Syndrome, and compulsive hair-pulling and skin-picking disorders.
Executive Functioning Therapies
Children, adolescents and adults with ADD/ADHD and Learning Disabilities often have issues with memory, planning, organizing, and strategizing their work; what psychologists call Executive Functioning. Our clinicians can work with our clients on remediating Executive Functioning and finding strategies that work for optimal success.
Collaborative & Proactive Solutions Psychotherapy (CPS)
Collaborative & Proactive Solutions Therapy (CPS) is a remarkably effective and research proven therapy that addresses behavioural issues that often occur together with ADD/ADHD. Our psychologists work in a positive, skills-based framework to help children, adolescents and their families deal with common issues such as oppositional behaviour, issues with impulsivity, and setting limits for computer and screen time. Collaborative & Proactive Solutions Psychotherapy was developed by Dr. Ross Greene and Harvard Medical School.
