Empowering Young Adults with LD and/or ADHD
Resources on this page
The transition from high school to adulthood can be tough. The expectations and pressures of the adult world may feel overwhelming at times, however, this transition can also be a time of excitement and possibility if you are prepared and have the right supports.
Moving Forward is a 10-week group program for young adults (ages 18 – 25 with an LD and/or ADHD diagnosis) aimed at helping to ease the adjustment to the adult world. Whether you are working towards post-secondary education, employment, or struggling to find your direction, this group will provide you with the opportunity to identify and explore your next steps while also creating connections with peers who are in a similar stage of life.
Each week the group will spend the first hour participating in a recreational activity of their choice (for example, cooking and sharing a meal; or trying a new sport). The following two hours are led by Psychologists and involve individual and group discussions in a safe and supportive environment. Topics vary based on the needs of the group, but generally include themes of increasing self-knowledge, developing goals, building new skills, and exploring identity development.
By participating in this group, you will learn more about yourself, feel the support of a group of peers, and develop tools to help you thrive as an adult.
