Member Benefits

As a member of the ADHD Coaches Organization, you will enjoy access to the following benefits:

  • Directory Listing: A listing in the ACO Directory of ADHD Coaches, the largest directory of vetted ADHD coaches available anywhere. The directory is available to the public and searchable by name, niche, state/province, country, key words, and several other options.  ACO members who are a trained coach with professional experience working with ADHD clients and who have had ADHD-specific training or education are eligible to be listed in the directory. See listing requirements.
  • Coach Community Forums: Our very popular members-only forums where members can talk shop, ask for referrals, and tap into the collective experience and knowledge of their fellow members.
  • Case Collaborations: Free access to monthly ACO Case Collaborations.  This networking opportunity meets the 3rd Wednesday of each month and collaborates on ADHD coaching approaches for different challenges and themes.  Attendees earn 1 ICF CCEU. 
  • Conference Discount: Reduced rates for the Annual International Conference on ADHD, including the ADHD Professional Institute that precedes it.
  • Free Access: 
    • Unlimited online access to the Journal of Attention Disorders, a first rate peer-reviewed journal on our topic (this alone is worth your entire membership dues!)
    • Unlimited online access to Dr. Russell Barkley’s The ADHD Report (this too is worth almost as much as your membership dues!).

“The ACO is the best place to connect with fellow coaches. I also get 95% of my clients through the ACO find a coach tool.”

“ACO is the only professional association membership I have (or had) that has resulted in actual client inquiries and conversions to actual clients. Best marketing I've experienced.”

“Connection with other coaches through the forum is so helpful to belong to a group of coaches focused on ADHD.”
