I firmly believe that coaches without ADHD specific coach training, as well as an intimate understanding of how ADHD shows up uniquely in each person, can unintentionally do more harm than good.
If you have ADHD and are looking for a coach, please confirm they meet these requirements:
• Completed ADHD specific coach training through an accredited ADHD coach training school.
• Have a firm belief that ADHD can offer many strengths- and they coach each of their clients to utilize them.
• Are able to listen without judgment. (REALLY- NO JUDGEMENT!). People with ADHD are judged enough and do not want or need it from their coach!
* When working with children and families, the coach has completed specific training focused on the unique skills needed to offer this service.
