Sometimes we don't know what we don't know...
When I would ask my son why he didn't turn in his homework or do well on a test, his go to answer was, "I don't know". This is a common answer for a child diagnosed with ADHD when asked why they struggled to do something or failed to do it all together. While frustrating for parents, it is in most cases the truth - they truly don't know.
Reflecting on how one completes daily tasks - like studying, or getting ready for school - is problematic for someone with focus issues. ADHD coaching provides that space for reflection, asking the right questions in a safe space, helping students develop strategies for essential skills like time management, organization, and study skills.
It is the job of an ADHD coach to lead students through the self reflection process and develop strategies that can make a difference.
ADHD Coaching is a collaborative, supportive, goal-oriented process in which the coach and the client work together to identify the client's goals and then develop the self-awareness, systems, skills, and strategies necessary for the client to achieve those goals and full potential. Typical goals include: organization, study skills, learning preferences, focus, reading comprehension, test anxiety, work completion, anger management and anxiety management.
