Coaching for Adolescents
The purpose of screening is to determine if both parent & child are ready for coaching:
* do you both want the service?
* can the parent support the plan?
* is the child able to engage fully?
This is an important consideration in moving forward as the coaching relationship will be directly with the child.
Sometimes, a therapist may be an important factor in how successful coaching will be.

The ADHD Coach Individualized Improvement Plan!
Let your child design goals and action steps with my & parent help.
Long-term goals need action steps, or mini-goals with coach accountability built in. Again, this is a customized plan that is relevant to your child's areas of difficulty: school issues, time management for example; areas that the child is interested in improving.
Celebrate small successes with rewards and keep moving forward!
Help your child develop skills that will result in confidence-building benefits.
