The Vision of the ACO is a world in which ADHD coaches are known and highly prized, respected, and sought after for their ability to help clients achieve goals and realize their full potential; a world where every person living with ADHD knows about coaching, and can easily find and work with an ADHD coach who is a perfect match for their needs.
That being said, there are not (yet!) nearly enough ADHD Coaches to realize this vision. In the United States alone there are 1.5 million people who could benefit from working with an ADHD Coach, which means we still need to train thousands of coaches to meet the need.
Because of the ACO’s commitment to this vision, and to “Promoting ADHD Coaches and Coaching Worldwide,” we are initiating a regular column in Circle in which we celebrate those who have recently graduated from an ADHD Coach Training Program.
This month we are pleased to feature the recent grads from Jodi Sleeper-Triplett’s Coaching ADHD Youth program, the recent grads from Denslow Brown’s ADHD Coach training program, and the recent grads from Wilma Fellman and Victoria Roche’s Career Services Specialty Training.
The ACO community celebrates your achievement and commitment. And, to paraphrase the great visionary leader, Mahatma Ghandi, we also celebrate that there are just that many more ADHD coaches to help make the difference we want to see in the world.
If any of the following coaches are friends of yours, please reach out and congratulate them personally.
