Coaching is hard work. I was considered successful, but knew there was something standing in the way between what I was and what I could be – both personally and professionally. My ADDRC Coach helped me to prioritize specific goals, develop strategies, and stick with an action plan. It worked!                      – J.G., NYC

IMPORTANT: The benefits of Coaching are usually immediate and measurable, beginning with the first session. It does, however, take time to develop and ‘own’ new habits and ways of thinking. It is important to realize that Coaching is not a substitute for appropriate medical treatment; nor is it a replacement for psychotherapy. In fact, the majority of our Coaching clients are referred by their doctors or therapists.

We Work On Your Issues- NOT Your Label

Coaching benefits most people, but is particularly helpful for coping with the subtle challenges presented by many neurobiological problems, including: Attention-Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD), Executive Functioning Disorders, Chronic Disorganization, Learning Disabilities, Difficulties with Motivation, Arousal or Sustained Effort, Chronic Underachievement, etc.

Our experienced ADDRC Coaches have a first-hand and comprehensive knowledge of these hidden disabilities. Most are Senior Certified AD/HD Coaches (SCAC). So, whether you have an official diagnosis, or just experience some of the myriad difficulties associated with AD/HD and related disorders, our goal is to give you the tools and know-how to succeed:

  • Compensatory Strategies
  • Education & Advocacy
  • Structure & Accountability
  • Motivation & Support
  • Awareness & Acceptance
  • Action Plans

Coaching Addresses Your Issues

These may be specific: a project that isn’t getting done, a career change that’s stalled, a disorganized office that’s overwhelming and unproductive, etc. Or your primary issues may be more general and pervasive, such as difficulty with time management, organization, communications, paperwork, and so on.

Coaching Changes Your Patterns

Your ADDRC Coach helps you to develop specific and realistic ways to implement change in your life. Our focus is on success, as you begin to:

  • Utilize new strategies – One definition of insanity is “doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.”
  • Better understand the impact of AD/HD – What it is, and isn’t; what can be changed, what should be accommodated – and how.
  • Reframe the problems – Consider issues from new perspectives, and so remove the unproductive albatross of guilt and regret.
  • Benefit from the unique support and accountability of the Coaching relationship.

My Coach helped me find the courage to let go of the thinking that was limiting my options, and of the clutter that was limiting my life.                   –  M.G., NYC

Coaching Is Tailored to Meet Your Needs

Our ADDRC Coaching sessions are typically 45 minutes, in-person or via phone, on a weekly basis. We encourage brief phone and email check-ins between sessions. Homework is utilized to help clarify recommended strategies, implement new directions and maximize time spent in-session. Coaching can be a one-meeting consult, but usually continues for several months. Many clients return as new issues arise in their lives.

Why Select The A.D.D. Resource Center Coaches?

We have been at the forefront of the movement to educate the public and professionals about ADD/ADHD. We recognized this wasn’t just a childhood issue, when the very existence of adult ADD was still in debate. We were pioneers in the early ADDult coaching movement, specializing in the unique challenges of adults with this disorder. We’ve continued to help inform and demystify, support and advocate. We have utilized the most effective coaching strategies and developed new techniques. The A.D.D. Resource Center has a proven track record of helping our clients succeed.

Our Origins

Harold ‘Hal’ Meyer, MBA, SCAC and Susan Karyn Lasky, MA, SCAC opened The A.D.D. Resource Center in 1991. The Resource Center was a natural outgrowth of work they had begun in 1989, as the founders and co-chairs of the New York City chapter of CHADD (Children & Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder), the national volunteer-based organization. The solutions-focused Resource Center was designed to meet the growing need for individualized education, advocacy and specific skills training. Our Programs emphasize real-world skills, fusing our extensive business experience (as corporate execs, consultants and entrepreneurs) with our personal and professional understanding of AD/HD. The Center’s Instructors, Coaches and Consultants are carefully selected for their expertise, compassion, experience and communications skills.

Our Programs Include

  • Adult, Adolescent & Family Coaching
  • Parenting Classes & Support Groups
  • Time, Project & Paper Management

Financial Information

Coaching is considered educational in nature, and is not usually covered by medical insurance. Check with your accountant if you qualify to take Coaching as either a medical or professional deduction on your income tax. Some employers will support Coaching as professional education.

Coaching is an Investment in Yourself

The payback is a better quality of life, and often a larger paycheck and more satisfying relationships, plus increased energy, free time and greater self-respect.

Transform your life now!
