Feeling Overwhelmed by ADHD? You’re Not Alone.

Navigating life with ADHD can feel like you’re trying to solve a puzzle while the pieces keep moving. From keeping up with schoolwork to managing social relationships to dealing with everyday distractions, it often feels like a never-ending balancing act.

It’s not just about the extra energy or inattention; it’s about finding ways to harness their unique strengths amidst these challenges. As a parent, you want to support them the best you can, yet sometimes the right approach isn’t clear. You’re seeking strategies that empower, not just instructions that manage.

We are here to help. Gain the skills and tools you and your child need to thrive.

Support for Thriving with ADHD

At Veritas Psychotherapy, we understand the challenges that come with ADHD. That’s why we’ve developed a specialized program designed to turn the tide on ADHD symptoms, providing structured support for children, teenagers, and their parents.

Your child or teen may be experiencing:

  • Challenges in staying focused on tasks.
  • Difficulties with organization at school and home.
  • Moments of frustration and stress due to emotional regulation challenges.
  • Impulsive actions impacting their social interactions and decision-making.
  • Periods of forgetfulness or misplacing personal items frequently.
  • Variable energy levels, sometimes feeling restless or having difficulty sitting still.
  • Difficulty following multi-step instructions or completing tasks.
The path to a more focused, organized life begins here.

Questions About ADHD Therapy

Each session of the ADHD Program is billed individually.  Clients are encouraged to check with their health insurance provider prior to starting sessions to see if they are covered for individual therapy with a Registered Social Worker with a Master’s of Social Work Degree.

The ADHD follows a structured, ten session curriculum that can be tailored according to individual client needs and goals.   Topics covered in the program for the child and teen include:

  • Understanding ADHD
  • Time management and organization skills
  • Setting goals and problem solving
  • Emotion regulation and stress management
  • Behaviour management and reducing hyperactivity
  • Enhancing social skills and peer relationships
  • Building independence

Topics covered in the program for parents include:

  • Effective strategies for parenting a child with ADHD
  • Building routines
  • Homework strategies
  • Supporting your child as they move towards independence
  • Self care

Yes!  Both the child and parent participating in the ADHD program will receive a binder chock full of handouts and practical tools for each week of the program.  These resources can be referenced later to review what was learned or to dive deeper into certain topics.  They are also a helpful way for the parent and child to practise the skills that were learned in therapy together at home.

If additional support is required by either the child or the parent following completion of the ADHD program, individual sessions may be scheduled with the therapist, either immediately after the program is finished or a few weeks or months after the program is complete.  We are here to support you and your child throughout your journey with ADHD.

The ADHD Program is currently run out of our Orillia office, located at 10 Mississaga Street East.  The program is also available through virtual therapy sessions.
