About The ADD Centre:

The A.D.D. Centre® began in the fall of 1992 and was incorporated in 1993. We currently operate with a Director, CEO, and 15 part-time staff with university degrees (many with advanced degrees - Masters and Doctorate levels) or professional qualifications in education and health related fields. 

We are currently the largest centre in Canada using EEG Biofeedback for ADD, with over 100 hours of training provided each week. Although clients include University professors, professionals, and senior executives who come to optimize performance it also works with patients in the treatment of epilepsy, Asperger's Syndrome, learning disabilities, Tourette's syndrome, closed head injury, autism, mood disorders, tension, and anxiety. The approach is one of education, training, and learning.
