The ACO, in service to ADHD Coaching and Associated Professional Communities, is debuting ACO Books, an imprint of the ADHD Coaches Organization, with its mission to publish essential reading for anyone interested in ADHD Coaching.

The first title to be published by ACO Books comes out this month:
ADHD Coaching Matters: The Definitive Guide by Sarah D. Wright. The book addresses everything you ever wanted to know about the profession of ADHD Coaching: its history, the evidence for its efficacy, a comprehensive listing of all available trainings and certifications, liability insurance options, how to decipher all those darned acronyms, chronologies of the development of the profession and of the ACO, and more.

There have been some great reviews of this book already. Here is just one of them:

BookCover“This book is a much needed addition to the field that will make it much easier for new (and established) ADHD Coaches to learn the lay of the land. Sarah Wright has done the painstaking work of bringing together all of the practical matters of coaching that are important but not easy to find, such as the various options for training and certification, what the different credentials mean, and how to get liability insurance. She also provides valuable history and discusses the people who shaped it–this is not just interesting, but also gives important context to the current state of the field. If you are serious about being an ADHD Coach, you need to read this book.” – Ari Tuckman, PsyD, MBA

So congratulations to the ACO for making this commitment to the profession, and to Sarah D. Wright for pulling together all the information for all of us!
