Who Can Benefit from ADHD Life Coaching?

“ADHD coaches work with parents of very young children, with parents and children in the pre-teen years, and directly
with teen clients. ADHD coaching for children and teens can lead to improved family life, better success at school and
optimum readiness for adult life.” Jodi Sleeper-Triplett, Pediatric Nursing/September-October 2008/ Vol.34 No.5

“By encouraging them to practice self-advocacy strategies and build related skills, coaches continue the process of
empowering clients.” Empowering Youth With ADHD: Your Guide to Coaching Adolescents and Young Adults for Coaches, Parents and Professionals, Jodi Sleeper-Triplett, MCC, SCAC. 2010

“A coach will help you recognize and maneuver around the obstacles in your way, waiting there in the shadows while you develop your own skills and strategies to reach your goal. A coach will stay with you, but a coach will not walk for you.” From The Disorganized Mind: Coaching Your ADHD Brain to Take Control of Your Time, Tasks & Talents, Nancy A. Ratey, Ed.M., MCC, SCAC. 2008

“A coach is someone who stays on you to get things done, exhorts you as coaches do, keeps tabs on you, and in general stands in your corner. A coach can be tremendously helpful in treating ADD.” From Driven to Distraction, Edward Hallowell, M.D. and John Ratey, M.D. 1994
