Harold is one of the pioneers in the field of adult ADHD. His expertise and personal integrity are of the highest order. I would give him an unqualified recommendation as a top tier ADHD coach. Coaching is not just a profession for Harold – he puts his heart and soul into the work.

Harold Meyer is without a doubt THE most accomplished, knowledgeable, and compassionate ADD and Business Coach that I have had the privilege of observing and collaborating with. Harold is a true professional who not only delivers top-notch service and expertise to his clients and colleagues; he also manages to extend his years of experience and training to newcomers in the Coaching field. I consider anyone who Harold is associated with to be very fortunate and hopefully has built upon his sage business advice and wisdom to advance in his or her career.
Harold Meyer offers an informational listserv to the ADHD community. This listserv provides regular updates about ADHD news, research, articles. In addition, Harold facilitates a CHADD NYC chapter which provides informative in-person events and meetings that feature ADHD professionals.
Meyer’s contribution to disseminating such information is invaluable. As an ADHD Coach, I appreciate his willingness to volunteer this service without charge. His work reminds me that we practitioners of all stripes are “in this together.” We want to improve the lives of those with ADHD.
I recommend Harold as a valuable leader and contributor to the ADHD community.
As Chair and Co-Founder of CHADD of NYC, Hal’s efforts and contributions have been commendable. For more than two decades, his oversight and coordination of monthly meetings and listserves has functioned to inform those with ADHD about a host of important issues regarding the disorder, ranging from assessment, treatment, and educational services, to new research findings. In his role at CHADD, he has helped educate those with ADHD and their parents about the condition, and equally important, has helped to dispel myths and misconceptions about ADHD.

Hal was tremendously valuable as a consultant and mentor when I was just out of grad school and trying to start a business. I had a ton of ideas, but very little idea what I was doing. Hal was extremely patient and helpful, especially in the early stages when I could have given in most easily. He is always willing to help, never short of ideas or suggestions, and has a manner that is naturally supportive and encouraging. That’s a tough combination to find. Highly recommended.

I have known Harold and his organisation for at least 8 years.

I have been privileged to know Harold personally and can attest to his absolute dedication to this area of expertise and totally admire and respect his opinions and guidance.

Harold is an extremely knowledgeable man in his field and truly dedicated to his work. He has over the years consistently provided a first rate service to personal clients and to an international community either working with or living with ADHD. We regularly refer people to The ADD Resource Center.
“I only know you because of your invaluable daily emails on ADHD. Our older son has both ADD and a math learning disability, and if it weren’t for you and the information you send out so faithfully, we wouldn’t have known where to turn or how to advocate for him. He is still struggling, but is so much better than he was. Sorry for such a long message, but I certainly wanted to thank you for what you are doing. Have a wonderful holiday!”
You’ve been very helpful and played an intrinsic part in my becoming employed. I think that with a more structured and productive schedule, a lot of my challenges have been alleviated and my ADD feels more manageable. I know that I will have to continue working on a lot of things, but I feel more capable of doing so on my own.
I’m sure that your guidance and advice will help me in the future as I continue to progress, but if it turns out that at some point I feel the need for extra help, I hope that we can meet again.
Hal Meyer is a font of knowledge regarding ADHD, and shares it willingly. He was wonderful to work with at the IAAC, where he provided guidance, direction and motivation to myself and other volunteers. He is friendly, compassionate, empathetic, caring, sincere, and highly intelligent. If I were looking for a coach, mentor or educator in NYC, Hal would be the first person I would call. Actually, I have called him for advice several times, and he has always gone out of his way to help me.
I just wanted to thank you for everything and make sure you know just how much you helped me over the past few years. I’m sure I’d be in a very different place if I hadn’t worked with you. I’m so glad to know that I can still call you and I’m looking forward to keeping in touch and getting your wisdom and advice in the future. You really are and have been great and your vote of confidence yesterday means a lot.
I just wanted to say, thanks so much. Right now I honestly feel you’re the only person I have in my life that *really* gets what’s going on with me and is giving me correct guidance, I’m really really really happy to have met you and be working with you, I feel very lucky (honestly).
I have been subscribed to your email alerts for just a few months, and unlike most email subscriptions I’ve tried, almost every day I learn something new from your posts. Thanks for all that you do to help educate and support those with ADHD and the people who support them – and for the many valuable pieces of information I have gleaned from your emails to help my son and my adult sister with their struggles with ADHD.
Just a quick note.. apparently it’s “thank your mentor day” and I wanted to thank you so much for the support and guidance you provided me. I’m really blessed to have met you 🙂
I just received word that my first xxxx grant will be funded! I could not have done this without your help over the years. You are a great friend and coach!
Harold has helped me to gain deep insight into my persona and also helped me to untangle (and understand) complex relationships with my ADHD daughter. His ability to listen – REALLY listen – and identify complex behaviors is exceptional. He is also terrific in helping people understand, interpret, and address latent or covert issues that may be unwittingly impacting relationships and behaviors.
Hi Hal! I saw you on LinkedIn and remembered our work together. Just wanted to let you know that I’m now working in advertising (and have been for several years) in exactly the position I desired. It’s going very well 🙂 I wanted to thank you for all your kindness and patience back in the day, our work together really helped me learn to manage and understand myself.
First, I want to thank you for introducing us to Hal and for even approaching him to see if he’d work with our budget!! X and Hal started working together and I have seen more change in X the last month than I have in the past year!!! Hal’s way of talking about and accepting ADHD has really changed the way that he is looking at it now! He is beginning to gain a self-confidence that I have never seen in him!!!!! So, so good!!!
Second, X is starting to take control of his medications.
Over the past several years I have attended talks and received email-ings from the ADD Resource Center and found this resource to be a tremendous fountain of information that I have learned and benefited from in navigating the often overwhelming, baffling, and difficult challenge of raising a child with ADD. When I recently turned to Hal Meyer (who does not know me), for advice regarding my now college-age child, he was extremely forthcoming and generous with his knowledge, wisdom and counsel. Thank you so much for being there for all of us, in many ways. Your help makes a huge impact on our lives.
I am just writing to say how much I appreciate that you created a section on your website all about special needs and people with disabilities.
It was extremely thoughtful of you to share this information for families in need.
I have a special needs brother and have a blog for families with children with autism and I know how much this extra effort means to families with special needs kids.
Your work, your programs, this website are extraordinary.
To say helpful is something of an understatement. I read everything.
All l can say more is a huge, heartfelt THANK YOU.
