Groups & Classes
At The ADHD & Asperger's Centre, we recognize that one on one therapy or coaching may not be an affordable option for everyone. Research also shows that you get the quickest results with a mix of groups and personal work, so we've created some low-cost options for understanding and mastering our ADD/ADHD and Asperger's Syndrome traits in the form of groups.

Join with ADHD and Asperger's experts and other parents/caregivers of kids of all ages with ADHD and/or Asperger's to get your questions answered, support from people who've been there, and a hopeful perspective on your child's future. We see ADHD and Asperger's as a gift and focus on managing the negative symptoms while helping to find and harness the amazing super powers of our kids (like high intelligence, creativity, kindness, and hyper-focusing).
Part workshop, part support group, these sessions have been described as "self-care I badly needed", "a safe place to not feel guilty, for once!", and "incredibly informative". We also offer refreshments and snacks!
We vote on new topics each course.
Topics we often discuss include:
Strategies for Adult ADHD/Asperger's Group
Every Thursday, 7:00pm - 8:00pm (First Session Free!)
Learn some hands-on techniques for managing and harnessing your ADHD/Aspie superpowers while getting to know people eerily similar to yourself. We're really into a sense of community so it's common that people will go out for tea or drinks after, so feel free to plan some extra time after for social stuff if you like.
Common issues we focus on include: time management, prioritization, managing paperwork, scheduling, problem solving, goal completion, focusing, and maintaining relationships but we vote on a new topic every week.
This group usually involves a discussion around a voted topic, a relevant technique or exercise, and setting a goal/intention for the week. Feel free to come alone or bring people from your life who you would like to understand your condition better. People who just want to understand ADHD/AS better (such as parents) can also come on their own.
This group is typically led by a practitioner with ADHD and/or ASD themselves (because we get each other best).
Details: @ The ADHD & Aspergers Centre, 55 Cork St. E., unit 305., Downtown Guelph, Ontario. Cost is $15/session, but the first session is FREE. Just Drop In! No diagnosis or registration necessary.
