Coach, Teacher, Writer: All-Round Innovator Is Published

This month we profile a book just published and written by Jodi Sleeper-Triplett. The following is excerpted from a summary by Jodi.

In this groundbreaking book on ADHD coaching for teens and young adults, ACO member, Jodi Sleeper-Triplett, Master Certified Coach to hundreds of young people with ADHD, pulls back the curtain on the powerful intervention of coaching youth with ADHD to help them break through barriers and succeed in their lives.

After struggling for years to manage ADHD through the two-dimensional framework of medication and therapy, more and more professionals, parents and individuals with ADHD are becoming enlightened by the discovery of coaching as the missing piece of the intervention enigma. For parents and professionals supporting a young person with ADHD, this book shows them a path that could help change lives forever.

Empowering Youth with ADHD: Your Guide to Coaching Adolescents and Young Adults for Coaches, Parents, and Professionals offers a thorough, hands-on guide for all individuals interested in learning more about coaching young people with ADHD, from life coaches interested in expanding their practices to a new market, to academic tutors and personal organizers wondering if they’d like to become trained as an ADHD coach, to therapists, psychiatrists, and pediatricians confused about what ADHD coaches do. In addition, the book demystifies the coaching process to reveal exactly how coaching supports the young person and how it supports the work of other ADHD professionals. This book will also help ADHD professionals make effective referrals to coaches when needed.
