Does your child have trouble with: making or keeping friends, managing their emotions with peers, picking up on social cues, interrupting, participating in group activities or becomes paralyzed or feels awkward in social situations? Social skills coaching helps kids and teens monitor and adapt their social behavior and deal with their behaviors in a more socially acceptable way.
You've tried so many strategies and systems, but nothing seems to work. Your family feels tired, stressed, and drained. Family members will learn what consistently activates the ADHD person's brain and what can lead to daily success. We will develop strategies and tools to manage ADHD as a family.
Each child is different and we take each students individual needs into consideration when coaching them for academic success. Whether your child struggles in a one subject or has general challenges with executive functioning.
Even though you made it through high school, college is a whole other level, especially with ADHD. IEPs and 504s are no longer applicable in college, so students are now encouraged to be more independent and self-advocate for accommodations. Other skills that are addressed in coaching are: strengths/ weaknesses, time management, daily schedules, organization, goal-setting, social skills, overwhelm/burnout, work/life balance, campus accommodations, and more.
Diagnosed at 34, 47, or even age 68? Late diagnoses in women can lead to a sense of relief because there is finally an answer for their actions over the years. However, it can be a time of grief. All those years of dealing with anxiety, depression, borderline grades in school, failure at relationships, financial struggles, job-hopping every 6 months....all of that could have been changed - if only you were diagnosed earlier in life. It's never too late to live to life you deserve.
Parenting a child with ADHD is definitely not easy at times. We help parents support their child and create a better dynamic between parent and child. Parent coaching can help educate the parents about the ADHD brain and how they experience the world from their perspective. We help you build confidence to effectively prepare and execute strategies based on their individual needs.
