OLTS & STOMP

On-Line to Success (OLTS) and Successful Transition Online and Mentoring Program (STOMP) are two transition programs run by RARC.  The programs are for students going from secondary to post-secondary school, and 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 as part of their Alternative Practicum 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.

A Note on Queen’s COVID-19 Vaccination Policy

Queen’s University has joined other universities and colleges in Ontario in implementing mandatory COVID-19 vaccination requirements for all students, staff, faculty, and visitors to Queen’s University. As part of Queen’s University, students participating in-person OLTS/STOMP programming are subject to this policy as well. 

At this time, all visitors (including OTLS/STOMP participants) on campus are required to be double vaccinated (14 days after second dose). Currently, there are no avenues for visitors to request an accommodation. Please note that we will be asking all students accepted to OLTS and STOMP to provide proof of vaccination status.

We thank you in advance for your cooperation and support in keeping the RARC and Queen’s community safe! Please contact the Transition Coordinator at olts.stomp@queensu.ca if you have any questions.
