ADHD Coaching Resource Guide

What is an ADHD Coach: 

 

The ADHD coach, who is trained in specific techniques to help those with ADHD, works with clients on tactical, not psychological, issues.

Together, the coach and client address practical issues such as managing time, maintaining focus, and becoming overall more effective in both personal and professional life. The coach asks what, how, or when, never why, such as: What can you do about it? How can you motivate yourself to take action? When must this action be completed?

The coach helps clients focus on understanding their own needs and setting their own goals for creating new behavior patterns. The coach provides encouragement, recommendations, feedback, and concrete techniques such as reminders, questions, and calendar monitoring to help the client stay on track.
