The purpose of ADHD coaching is to help students of all ages to develop strategies for attaining important life skills and achieving success. We offer coaching services to elementary age students, teens, young adults and professionals. These services are available over the phone, at the Center, in your home, or at your office.
Coaching is designed for students who need individualized guidance to reach their highest level of functioning. Coaching provides students with the structure, support, knowledge and experience they need to overcome their learning disabilities. Confidential and client-driven, coaching is a one-on-one partnership, a planned alliance that offers viable answers to the student’s everyday challenges.
For elementary age students who struggle academically, we teach parents how to coach their child. We want to help parents understand the challenges and frustrations their kids are experiencing, to better prepare them to succeed as coaches. The process begins by answering critical questions like:
- How does the student learn?
- What challenges to learning does the student face?
- How can we transform challenges into strengths?
- What techniques work best for the student?
- What approaches will increase their confidence?
Next, we work with the parent to develop strategies that work best in addressing the specific issues related to their children’s learning challenges. For example, if the student has difficulty completing assignments or turning in homework, we help the parent break the process down into manageable tasks that the student can perform. The key is discovering methods and approaches that work for your child.
Parents also learn how to gradually transfer these coaching skills to their children. This helps the student to better manage and cope with the life-long challenges of ADHD as they grow into adulthood.
Are the symptoms of ADHD keeping you from meeting deadlines or being promoted at work? Do you struggle to deal with life changes or handle the mundane demands of life? Coaching can help.
Whether you are attending college, new to the work force, or a seasoned professional, our coaching programs can help you address the challenges to efficiency that you face every day.
We begin by assessing your ability to manage your time, organize projects into smaller tasks, and deal with deadlines. Then we develop a program that incorporates your strengths and compensates for weaknesses. This approach works whether you are trying to tackle an assignment at school, complete a project at work, or pay your bills at home.
Through coaching, we help the student:
- Understand their abilities and style of learning
- Learn self-management and organizational skills
- Develop strategies for overcoming challenges
- Focus on their strengths
The symptoms of ADHD never go away, but you can become better at managing them. By finding the strategies that work best for you, coaching can help you excel in your present circumstances and obtain important life skills that translate into personal and professional success.
