Kari Miller, PhD, College Committee Chair, Job Seekers’ Club Facilitator

Dr. Kari Miller, PhD, BCET is a board certified educational therapist who has been educating and coaching adults and young people who have ADHD, autism, learning disabilities, emotional challenges, and other complex needs for more than thirty years.

Dr. Miller holds a PhD in educational psychology and mathematical statistics, an MEd in Learning Disabilities, Gifted Education and Educational Diagnosis, and a BS in Early Childhood Education and Behavior Disorders.

As an instructor for the University of California Riverside Extension, she teaches professionals from fields such as special education, speech pathology, and counseling how to develop and implement individualized treatment plans for learners with complicated needs arising from conditions such as ADHD, learning disabilities, and autism.

In addition to providing educational therapy and ADHD coaching services to her clients, she has worked in the special education and statistical research fields as a resource room teacher, student-teacher supervisor, university instructor, testing analyst, research consultant, and grant administrator.

Besides serving on ADDA’s board of directors, Dr. Miller is the Chair of ADDA’s College Committee and Facilitator of ADDA’s Job Seekers’ Club.

She is also a committee advisor for Foundation ThinkAgain, a non-profit organization that provides rehabilitation therapies to children who continue to suffer due to the neuro-cognitive late-effects of cancer and cancer treatment.

She is a member of AET (Association of Educational Therapists), CHADD (Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder), and IDA (International Dyslexia Association).

Dr. Miller provides support across the lifespan – to school-aged students with learning and attention challenges, to young adults in transition to college or the workplace, and to individuals with ADHD who have passionate dreams, but are frustrated by procrastination, lack of focus and difficulty following through.

Her specialties include ADHD coaching, executive skill development, memory training, dyslexia and literacy remediation, and math instruction.

Dr. Miller was sidelined by a catastrophic illness when she was 29 years of age. For the first five years of her illness, she couldn’t even leave her house except to go to the doctor’s office. It was a full ten years before she recovered her health enough to go back to college and complete her education.

Surviving this decade – and thriving afterwards – taught Dr. Miller firsthand about the power of strategically leveraging your personal strengths into productive action!

When she’s not working with clients, creating ADHD and educational therapy training programs, or feeding the squirrels in the park, she’s completing cryptic crosswords or jigsaw puzzles with her husband of 35 years, Joel, and their two purr-fect felines, Midnight and Sugar Pie! Oh, and if she’s lucky – indulging in her jewelry-making hobby or playing match-3 games on her tablet!
