ADDvance Coaching guides learning-challenged young adults through difficult life transitions. Our telephone coaching sessions are customized to help individuals achieve their goals. Most sessions are with the young adults and adjusted to their pace. We also strongly encourage periodic joint telephone sessions with their parents to support new awareness and practices.

  • The Need. For a seed to grow, it must receive nourishment from water, the sun and nutrients. Similarly, individuals with ADD / ADHD who have learning challenges need to receive all of the conditions for success to grow to their full potential.
  • Target Clients. ADDvance Coaching is geared especially for young adults with ADD or similar learning challenges who are –
    • Seeking a successful transition to college;
    • Having difficulty succeeding in college; or
    • Starting out in their careers.
  • Why Coaching? The price and difficulty of college increases every year. Competition in the job market continues to rise. Living in this hectic world as an adult with learning difficulties can be daunting.

    Coaching focuses on specific areas of concern for individuals. Coaching can help young adults increase their ability to enter and succeed in college, a career, and life as an adult.
  • The Coaches. We offer practical solutions and advice for both young adults and parents about what’s worked for us in managing ADD through major transitions.
  • We help individuals with ADD become self-aware and self starters to create an environment that is ideally suited for them to succeed. We also help their parents provide the right amount of support, structure, and independence.
  • Coaching Process. Coaching sessions are 45 minutes long and done over the telephone. We find that scheduling weekly sessions reinforces learning and maintains progress.
  • Progress Sessions. We encourage a joint quarterly telephone session with young adults and their parents.
  • Awareness Coaching. Awareness is the underlying issue for individuals with ADD. They can remember things in their long-term memory, but have trouble getting them there in the first place.

    Our coaches address individual situations to help create attitudes, systems, and support needed for success. To improve awareness, we also help individuals build healthy life habits.
  • Outcomes of Coaching. There are no cookie-cutter solutions for success since every individual has different needs.
