Coaches Making an Impact
In addition to being excellent ADHD coaches, our ACO members are also impacting our professional field. Here are a few that have come across my desk recently.
Two of our member ADHD coaches, Dale Davison and Linda Walker, are quoted in an article on WebMD.com, How to Curb Impulsive Speech. The reader is encouraged to build awareness around the source of impulsivity and take concrete steps to manage.
ACO member, Pat Hudak and her co-coordinator, Pam Barton — leaders of the Northern Virginia and DC Chapter – accepted the CHADD Affiliate of the Year Award.
Their Chapter is continuously in touch with the public school systems, private schools, and other non-profit organizations through collaborative information sharing. This includes Chapter participation in various types of outreach events, e.g., workshops, conferences, and summits.
They’ve hosted seminars as a part of a CHADD Lecture Series, and co-hosted an informative ADHD Awareness Month event. Their monthly group meetings are an opportunity for community members to share experiences, learn from each other, and recognize that they “are not alone”.
Curious Accountability: Three Coaching Conversations for Better Client Results describes the approach that ACO Member, Cameron Gott and Casey Moore developed and practice. This e-book is a call to action for coaches everywhere. Aimed at coaches, productivity consultants, professional organizers and others who want to help clients make measurable change in their lives.
ACO members, Elizabeth Ahmann and Lisa Tuttle along with Micah Saviet published an article in Pediatric Nursing, entitled Interventions for ADHD in Children and Teens: A Focus on ADHD Coaching. The literature review identified 22 studies addressing ADHD coaching, of which 19 examined outcomes; seven of these studies were specific to children and teens. The studies of coaching for young people with ADHD, like those among older individuals, suggest that ADHD coaching is a promising behavioral intervention and a useful component of multimodal treatment.
