If you are a parent or an educator then it is very likely you have a personal connection with someone who’s living with ADHD. It could be with one of your own children, a neighbor’s child, a spouse, a student in your class, or perhaps even yourself. Instead of the peaceful balance you want at home, in the classroom, or at work somehow the reality you experience is quite different! Chaos instead of calm!
Given the pace of life today, all of us –children as well as adults- experience distractibility, disorganization, forgetfulness, procrastination, and impulsive behavior. Yet for someone with ADHD, these dysfunctions occur with such frequency or to such a degree that they impact his or her entire wellbeing.
Consider the child who excels at video games, but can’t seem to focus on homework for more than two minutes. Or the high school student who constantly forgets to hand in assignments. Or the college student who – no longer living at home – can’t seem to handle both academics and basic life skills. Or the adult who can’t seem to manage time or money. Often they are seen as bad, stupid, or incompetent. What results are often feelings of frustration, alienation, lowered self esteem, and a general feeling of being out of sync with the rest of the “normal” world.
As an ADHD Coach, I provide the structure and support necessary to help adults or youth living with ADHD establish more positive strategies for navigating through life. I help them identify and prioritize goals and simplify those goals into manageable steps towards success. I also provide accountability as desired, often with daily check-ins by email or texting.
But ADHD Coaching goes beyond changing habits or learning new skills. What I love best is helping others discover – and own up to – their own unique juiciness.
