Outside the Box: ADHD Services Inc. helps ADHD children to be successful by providing child-centered education and services so that they can contribute their unique outlook to the improvement of the world. By helping students excel they can advocate for the changes they need and help parents, caregivers and teachers to see that ADHD is not a disability but rather a unique and brilliant way of thinking.
Outside the Box works exclusively with ADHD youth. It is our belief that ADHD is not a learning disability but rather a different way of thinking and processing information. Using this understanding of ADHD we work with the student’s learning style to create an environment of fast-paced fun when doing homework or learning new skills. We are a child-centered company; our focus is on the child and their needs. We are a child-centered company; our focus is on the child and their needs.
We offer one-on-one tutoring in the student home. We work with the student’s learning style to create an environment of fast-paced fun when doing homework or learning new skills.
We offer counseling services which use narrative therapy to separate the child from the disorder and focuses more on the strengths the child has. This leads to developing a well rounded and positive image of the child for themselves and for the adults in their lives.
We offer workshops for parents, educators, and students to help them understand that challenges faced by those diagnosed with ADHD, and how to see the strengths and abilities that people with it have.
Outside the Box was founded by Brieanna Ingram, a UBC graduate from the Department of Family Studies. Growing up with several relatives with ADHD, at an early age Brieanna began to see that when those with ADHD tried to fit in the proverbial box of life they felt depressed, angry, and frustrated and they ultimately failed. However, when they embraced their unique way of thinking and acting they became successful, happy, and talented. She has spent her life helping children with learning challenges to succeed by helping them find their strengths. At Outside the Box, our mission is to help your child find their foundation for life-long success and confidence. – less
