OnTrac for Parents

Parenting is a challenging task at the best of times, and parenting a child with ADHD comes with added challenges. Learning to negotiate these challenges is made more difficult by the fact that there are no hard and fast rules, as ADHD can have different degrees of severity and presentation.

The Parent OnTrac Group Program is for parents who have a child registered on the OnTrac Tween (aged 11-14) Group Program, OR if you have a child who has ALREADY completed an OnTrac program. It is run at the same time as the Tween program in a different room and facilitated by Dr Andrew Sheridan.

Note that the Parent OnTrac Group Program is on a first come basis and limited to a maximum 10 participants.
