One of the more useful strategies for helping individuals with ADHD is coaching. Coaches attempt to guide rather than tutor children with ADHD. Coaches are also useful in helping adults with ADHD to organize and structure their lives. Coaching for ADHD can be done face-to-face, but technologies like texting, e-mailing, Skyping, and telephoning are also used as methods for communication. If you do not know very much about coaching, we’ll help you get better acquainted with it.
