What is ADHD Coaching?
Coaching is a collaborative, action oriented partnership designed to help people make the changes they want. ADHD Coaching is Life Coaching specifically designed to address the unique concerns of individuals who deal with the challenges of ADHD. As Certified Coaches, specially educated in ADHD Coaching, we are trained in the research, science and most effective treatment plans for working with people with ADHD, Executive Function Disorders, and related issues.
Widely respected organizations and individuals, including the National Institute of Mental Health, Children and Adults with Attention Deficit Disorder (CHADD), Russell Barkley (ADHD: A Handbook for Diagnosis and Treatment), and Edward Hallowell (Driven to Distraction) have endorsed Coaching as a vital missing link for achieving success.
An ADHD Parent Coach will:
- Provide you and your family with education and support to begin to reduce the blame, pessimism and stress that so often exists for the ADHD student and their family.
- Identify needs, set goals and build strategies necessary to compensate for their difficulties, and help students learn to use their ADHD as their STRENGTH.
- Teach techniques for maintaining focus, staying on task, and improving time management and organizational skills.
- Consult with other professionals (teachers, therapists, psychiatrists) to ensure that we are all working effectively and in unison on your behalf.
