Coaching is a powerful tool a person with ADD/ADHD can use to deal with challenges arising
from this condition. A coach helps a person set goals, formulate specific steps to reach
those goals, and develop the skills needed to achieve the desired results. A coach is also
the client's cheerleader, providing non-judgmental support and encouragement throughout the process.
Edward M. Hallowell, M.D., and John G. Ratey, M.D., authors of Driven to Distraction:
Recognizing and Coping with Attention Deficit Disorder from Childhood through Adulthood,
have stated, "We particularly like the idea of a coach . . . the coach can stave off a
reversion to old bad habits: habits of procrastination, disorganization, and negative thinking."
The coaching process begins with a two-hour initial meeting. Clients provide general information
and begin identifying life areas they wish to focus on and goals they want to achieve. Working
together, the client and coach design a step-by-step program to develop new habits and skills.
Daily or weekly follow-up sessions are conducted by phone or in person.
