What an honor it was to see my name on a blog post from SOAR: “The Top 60 ADHD Coaches for Teens in the U.S.”
In the article, an ADHD coach is described as “someone trained to help people with ADHD and ADD to live better lives through taking proactive steps to address specific issues.”
SOAR chose the top ADHD coaches using three criteria:
- Coaches have been vetted by the ADHD Coaches Organization (ACO)
- Coaches are available to work with teens anywhere in the U.S. (that is, they conduct work remotely as well as in person)
- Coaches have demonstrated a commitment to helping young people with ADHD/ADD to live better, more fulfilling lives
The blog’s author, Zacc Dukowitz, summarized what an ADHD coach can do for teens:
An ADHD coach can help students by proposing frameworks for organizing their daily tasks, managing their time, making decisions, and finding the motivation and drive to move forward with tasks in their lives. ADHD coaches can also be helpful when it comes to helping students with how they see themselves—that is, with their self-esteem.
If your child seems to struggle with being late and managing his or her time, or always has a stack of overdue homework, an ADHD coach could be the solution.
SOAR provides outdoor adventure programs for youth and young adults ages 8-24 with a focus on an individual’s strengths, rather than their deficits. The leveraging of strengths to work around individual challenge areas is at the heart of ADHD coaching for students and adults.
