Often ADHD is perceived as negative due to a general lack of understanding and/or because certain ideas and methods of how to “be and do” just hasn’t worked well for an individual or family. Adhd does not mean less intelligent or unwilling -it just means not neurotypical and sometimes fitting into the prescribed "norm" of the moment or situation is a challenge. Adhd traits also present differently from person to person. This is why I subscribe to "one size does not fit all". Using the same tools, the same methods, or applying the latest trends (without careful examination of benefit) is not a guaranteed system for success.
As I partner with my clients, we identify and note their unique qualities and preferences. We build a knowledge base of what they do well and how they do it well. Together we customize the supports and techniques which address the need at hand and demonstrate value.
* You need not have a diagnosis of ADHD to enlist my coaching service. Often people who desire productive and meaningful relationships with ADHD colleagues and family members are beneficiaries.
The number and variables of class subjects, homework assignments, and extra curricular activities can often overwhelm the best of students. Given an opportunnity to explore and know what we do well and how we do it best, will lead to success in all areas of study. This awareness reduces common invasive thoughts of "not enough time" or "not good enough" which can lead to anxiety and/or depression.
When it comes to educational classes and subjects that have little or no immediate interest, it doesn't mean we have come to a dead end. Partnering with a coach for creative exploration will reveal a meaning and connection to the subject for us. Once we connect the course of study to our personal value or need, we can sustain study habits and retain the information we need.
When it comes to test taking, it is not just subject knowledge that determines a successful test score. How we think and feel about taking tests often makes the difference of whether we can access the knowledge we gained during course study and accurately represent our knowledge on the test in the time alotted. Coaching for test taking using emotional regulation skills can make a difference.
