My experience with raising two boys diagnosed with ADHD (one, ADHD-Hyperactive; the other, ADHD-Inattentive) and 10+ years of working with ADHD students have given me a deep and personal understanding of how an ADHD or executive dysfunction (EF) diagnosis affects all aspects of a student’s life. As a Board Certified Coach, there is nothing more satisfying to me than to see a student’s self-esteem rise as he or she develops skills to overcome tremendous obstacles such as difficulty focusing, procrastination, disorganization, or the inability to set priorities. I am especially proud of my students who, as their confidence grew, became comfortable being their own advocate — and the pride they felt at achieving such a major accomplishment!
At the very core of ADHD/EF coaching is the recognition that students are bright, creative, and have a desire to do well. I employ a strengths-based approach in my work with students, using their unique attributes as the foundation for creating a goal-oriented plan for achieving personal and academic success.
