How can coaching help with ADHD?
Coaching is designed to enhance important self-regulation skills, teach coping skills, create individually tailored systems and processes and develop new methods of approaching the world. ADHD Coaching rests on partnership, accountability, insight through education and rewards. Coaches work to best minimize ADHD’s disadvantages and maximize its advantages.
What is ADHD?
Attention-deficit disorder, also known in one form as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), is a chronic condition that affects millions of people. ADHD often leads to difficulties with inattention, impulsivity, hyperactivity, time management, staying on task, prioritizing, organization and social skills.
How does ADHD effect your life?
ADHD can have a devastating impact on social relationships, occupational functioning and academic progress. This often comes with a more positive symptom called hyper-focus, a narrow tunnel vision of intense focus on things that are stimulating. Hyper-focus often leaves loved ones with the misimpression that people with ADHD are simply choosing what to give their attention, which is not the case. Coaches who specialize in ADHD can help.
