The ACO is very pleased to announce the newly revitalized Committee for Research on ADHD Coaching, more easily referred to as “The Research Committee.” This committee is chaired by board member Virginia Hurley, EdD, ACC who is joined by:

Over the last few months the committee has examined how it can best serve the ACO community, and its new mission statement says it all:

The mission of the ACO Research Committee is two-fold. First, the committee will regularly present summaries of relevant studies to the ACO community in order to both provide members with the latest ADHD and coaching research and inform coaches about how to critically evaluate research reports. Second, the committee will support the ADHD coaching community by fostering additional research on the efficacy of ADHD coaching. This committee may collaborate with other groups, research facilities, and funding sources.

So starting next month, look for regular research articles in Circle. Additionally, if you are interested in volunteering for this exciting committee, doing research reviews, writing them up for Circle, or doing research into the effects of ADHD Coaching yourself, please fill out the volunteer engagement form, or contact Virginia directly.
