What is ADHD coaching?

Did you just receive an Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) diagnosis?

If so, you might be trying to decide the best course of action moving forward. ADHD coaching is recommended as an adjunct to other treatments in order to assist you with managing all of life's responsibilities.

 

To begin, an ADHD Coach is a Life Coach with an ADHD Lens - extensive ADHD education and training learning how to coach those with a unique brain wiring.

According to the association CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder), ADHD coaches work collaboratively with their clients who have ADHD or ADHD-like symptoms to address specific needs and personal goals. Most current ADHD coaching programs acknowledge the biological underpinnings of the disorder in addressing the core symptoms of ADHD (inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity); however, coaching addresses the academic, vocational, emotional and interpersonal life difficulties that are a result of these symptoms and helps clients find ways to overcome these challenges. Through individualized or group assistance and support, coaches help people concentrate on where they are now, where they want to be and how they can get there.
