CONSULTATION & EDUCATION
A consultation is first required for all teens to understand the concerns, to confirm the diagnosis, and to evaluate if investigations (ex. a sleep study) are required. After the consultation, education is provided and treatment options are discussed.
These services typically take place over 1-2 appointments*. The presence of a parent and/or caregiver is suggested for these appointments.
*Please note: During the current work-from-home circumstances, all new consultations will be arranged through the administrative staff at Dr. Ooi's other practice location, MedSleep Toronto Sleep Institute. All care is being delivered virtually.
DECODE INSOMNIA PROGRAM
FOR YOUTH AGES 13-26 IN ONTARIO, CANADA
WHAT IS IT?
The DECODE Insomnia Program is a 6-week treatment program created by Dr. Ooi for youth and their parents. It incorporates elements of cognitive-behavioural therapy for insomnia (CBT-I), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and coaching strategies.
Currently this program is available to youth ages 13-26 in Ontario, Canada.
The program is delivered through a combination of OHIP-covered appointments, parent office hours, and short video/audio lessons on an online platform/app. All sessions are virtual.
This program is for those ready for a comprehensive treatment approach.
If this program is not a good fit, general insomnia/sleep advice is available on this website and/or during general clinic visits with Dr. Ooi.
