Academic and Life Coaching for
Adults and Adolescents with ADHD
What is ADHD Coaching?
ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is a brain-based disorder that affects children, adolescents and adults and makes it difficult for an individual to pay attention and control impulsive behaviors. It can be accompanied by restlessness and constant activity.
In addition, ADHD is typically accompanied by impaired Executive Functions (EF) - these cognitive functions controls and direct behavior towards managing every-day tasks.
Individuals with impaired Executive Functions will often exhibit difficulties in social skills, life skills (organizing, planning, managing time, getting started and completing tasks) remembering and emotional control.
Having ADHD can be a frustrating and alienating experience for the individual and family members. With the help and support of an ADHD coach, the individual can navigate through the daily challenges of life, and ADHD coaching can be an effective and useful supplement for the treatment of ADHD.
An ADHD/Executive Function Coach helps to address difficulties such as time management, organization, motivation and initiation, and explores skills and strategies for growth and change. Coaching is not therapy; it focuses on the process of achieving desired outcomes, and helping individuals to adapt and move successfully forward in life.
The ADHD coaching process is a collaborative partnership based on mutual trust, honesty and openness. And, it is designed to help individuals manage their daily responsibilities - academic, professional or personal and have a more confident and fulfilling life.
