Objective: This is perhaps the first outcome study on the efficacy of ADHD coaching for adults with ADHD and its longterm effect.
Method: Forty-five adults (30 women, 15 men) rated 22 areas of concern before and after the coaching experience. Factor analysis of the 22 areas of concern revealed five factors. Descriptive statistics and intercorrelations were analyzed on the five factors.
Results: Test–retest reliabilities for each factor ranged from .44 to .61, all statistically significant at p < .01. In addition, there are many significant correlations between factors at similar times and factors at different time periods that provide preliminary research support for the efficacy of ADHD coaching. Repeated measures two-way analysis of variance was used to determine the effects of ADHD coaching alone as well as the combined effect with therapy or stimulants.
Conclusions: Results indicate that ADHD coaching is having the desired effect on the five factors.
