OLTS & STOMP

On-Line to Success (OLTS) and Successful Transition Online and Mentoring Program (STOMP) are two secondary to post-secondary transition programs run by RARC that take place from March-June. OLTS is for students in Grades 11 and 12 with learning disabilities, ADHD and/or Autism Spectrum Disorders.  STOMP is for students in Grades 11 and 12 with mental health disorders, including (but not limited to): depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and OCD.

Both OLTS and STOMP are primarily web-based courses developed by teams from Queen's University, Loyalist College, and Cambrian College. They have been designed to specifically target and address areas that research has shown are problematic for students with disabilities as they make the transition to post-secondary education. Almost all of the programs can be completed on-line, where students will develop strategies to be better prepared for post-secondary education, and to better deal with the increased demands of workload, stress management, and self advocacy required at this level. The programs are moderated by trained teacher candidates at Queen's Faculty of Education, and supervised by staff at RARC. These are pass/resubmit courses, and moderators will provide students with feedback and support regarding their assignments.

Some secondary schools have agreed to grant a partial General Learning Strategies (GLE) credit (0.5) for the course. Please speak with your schools Resource, Learning Support or Student Success department regarding this matter.
