ADHD coaching is targeted towards the practical aspects of life such as time management, organizational skills, memory and any other functional difficulties an individual may be experiencing. It is a holistic approach, focusing on the total person.
ADHD coaches help establish goals and activities and identify obstacles to achieving a person’s goals. This coaching also focuses on tasks, priorities, action and learning from mistakes.
ADHD coaching helps the person learn what motivates them. It helps them deal with difficulty initiating an activity and with distractions. It helps develop the tools, techniques, strategies, and interventions needed to accomplish goals, and involves accountability and provides methods for reporting what has or has not been accomplished. Trust and honesty in the therapeutic relationship between the ADHD coach and the individual is a key component to growth.
