I had a GP that started to help me with my ADD and now he has retired and I have no one to treat me and I can't find anyone in the GTA, or in South Western Ontario for that matter.

Help!

A quick google search got me lots of links. This was one of the better ones I thought.

Cyber-raven:

1. Do you have testing paperwork for your ADD/ADHD?
2. Are you taking/can you take a college/university course?

If yes to both, it is much easier to get into see an ADD Doctor at a University Student Health Centre.

That is how I got in to see mine!!

Once established, the minimum that my doc will see me is every three months. This means 4 bus rides from Toronto to Kingston/year, but it's worth it -- so i can have an MD/ADD Psychiatrist.


Email me with any questions.

I finally found a coach here in Guelph where I am currently living. Her name is Carol A. McMullen here is her url: www.sentex.net/~mcmullen.

She is a learning disabilities specialist and ADD and Asperger's Coach who has directed educational and mental health programs at the University of Guelph.

The place you are MOST likely to find an Adult ADD specialist is at the University -- or at a Univ. w/ a medical school.

That was how i found mine.

My SO had trained [as a Resident] with the ADD Doctor that i have.

Talk to the Univ's 'Student Counselling' Dept to get info about local Resources you can exploit. <G>

Let us know how you do with your Mission. :D

I found mine at a children's hospital. They treat adults as well. Extremely knowledgable and very friendly.
