Why You Need A Credentialed ADHD Coach

For many people with AD/HD, the desire – and ability – is there to do great things, but they often find it difficult to channel their ideas in productive and socially correct ways, or to stay with a concept until fruition. Common challenges, such as time management, organization, goal setting and prioritization are often issues that medication or therapy do not address, whereas the focus of AD/HD coaching is on building skills and taking action. Good coaching definitely helps people to improve their business focus, interpersonal skills and ability to get things done in such a way as to lead a more productive, fulfilling and rewarding life.

For our profession to grow and gain credibility, it is vital that AD/HD Coaches seek specialized credentials being offered to them.  An AD/HD Coach credential signifies that the coach has achieved a rigorous standard of knowledge, skill and experience and is providing a high standard of expertise to their clientele.

As with any profession, I would not send a patient to someone who has not attained sufficient training and education in a field.  When looking for an ADHD Coach, doing a little research will help you find a coach that has earned a credential in that profession. General Coach training is a plus but when you find a credentialed AD/HD Coach, it signifies that the coach has been through extensive training and has been evaluated for skill, knowledge, ability and expertise.
