What is ADHD coaching?
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.
Coaching is the primary skill and ADHD coaching is the secondary skill for a coach. A trained coaching professional is able to add ADHD knowledge to the foundation of coaching to be effective.
