An emergent body of research shows that coaching is more powerful in addressing symptoms of ADHD than other forms of support such as psychotherapy. Coaches are specifically trained to help children with ADHD learn to manage time, break down daunting tasks into manageable steps, keep themselves organized, think proactively, use mindfulness techniques, and learn to check their thinking/acting at intervals.
This workshop will define the difference and delineate the effective techniques unique to coaching children and teens with ADHD. The content of the coaching plan is contrasted and merged with the process of coaching throughout the workshop. This is an experiential workshop where you will work with one another to learn and practice ADHD coaching strategies.
