Treatment

COMPREHENSIVE TREATMENTS FOR A RANGE OF ISSUES
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT Psychotherapy)
Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for ADHD is an effective and proven treatment for adolescents and young adults with ADHD. Our therapists work with techniques developed by Dr. Mary Solanto at the NYU School of Medicine that can counteract the daily effects of 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 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 young adults with ADD/ADHD and Learning Disabilities often have issues with memory, planning, organizing, and strategizing their work ; what psychologists call Executive Functioning. Our psychology can work with our clients and on remediating Executive Functioning and find 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.
Family Therapy
ADHD doesn’t only affect the individual but the whole family. Families affected by ADHD often develop dysfunctional patterns and parent-child conflicts that in themselves become impairing. Our social workers can help families work together towards common goals of happiness and success. We offer both in-clinic and in-home family therapy.
Occupational Therapy
Many children with ADD/ADHD, Tourette Syndrome, Learning Disabilities and Autism Spectrum Disorders require help with coordination, fine motor issues and sensory skills and self- and emotional regulation issues. Our occupational therapist can work to address these using evidence based treatments. We offer both in-clinic and in-home occupational therapy.
Comprehensive Behavioral Intervention for Tics (CBIT)
Comprehensive Behavioural Intervention for Tics (CBIT) is an innovative and effective non-medication treatment for Tics and Tourette Syndrome. Our clinic is one of the few centres in Ontario to offer CBIT, a research proven method that gives control and hope back to those suffering from Tourette Syndrome and Tics.
Medication Therapy
Whether or not to use medications is never an easy decision, but sometimes, despite the best efforts of our clients and their family, therapy on its own is not enough. Our psychologists and clinicians may suggest a consultation with our psychiatrists to discuss medication options. The psychiatrists will work with your child’s pediatrician or family physician to find a solution that works best for your child and family.
Appointments with our psychiatrists are covered under OHIP and available for children 17 years of age and under. Appointments with our psychologists, social workers, and occupational therapists are covered by most private insurance plans.
