Coaching for Students
ADHD Coaching Proven to Work for Students
A study published online in the Journal of Attention Disorders states:
“Students reported that ADHD coaching helped them become more self-regulated, which led to positive acdemic experiences and outcomes. Students described ADHD coaching as a unique service that helped them develop more productive beliefs, experience more positive feelings, and engage in more self-regulated behaviors. . . ADHD coaching helped participants enhance their self-control as they responded to the multifaceted demands of undergraduate life.” [Parker, et.al., (2011)]
Build Your Team for Success
You are the captain of your success team, so you get to choose who is on that team with you. You may want to recruit your professors and teaching assistants, the people at your student support services center, your doctor, your academic and career counselors, and others to join your team.
An ADHD coach can be a major part of your college success team!
An ADHD coach listens nonjudgmentally to how you are experiencing your life and what goals you have set for yourself. The coach then helps you identify your greatest challenges and what strategies you can use to meet those challenges.
With the coach’s support you learn how to shape your chosen strategies into effective new habits and how to put in place your own unique time and place structures to achieve order and satisfaction in your life.
In 30-minute weekly sessions (either in person or by phone or Skype) and more frequent email/text check-ins, you choose how you wish to have your coach hold you accountable for your weekly goals.
Our coaching supports students as they learn new ways to meet challenges such as scheduling, organizing, goal-setting, focusing, persisting, prioritizing, and confidence building.
