A.D.H.D. coaching is considered an emerging field, although the profession is becoming more widely known. Interviews with coaches and clients, and a number of studies assessing college students, suggest that it can help manage A.D.H.D. symptoms like inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity, while improving executive functioning skills and self-esteem.”

Unlike a therapist or an executive coach, the A.D.H.D. coach educates their clients about A.D.H.D. and works collaboratively with them to develop stronger emotional regulation, meet goals, find self-acceptance and create practical solutions that help them stay focused — such as checklists, timers and calendars. Sessions are not covered by insurance.”
