This is the essential first step in working with me as your ADHD coach.
It may be all the coaching you need, or you could choose an ongoing coaching program to continue working with me.
When you first get an ADHD diagnosis, your mind is buzzing with questions. You may be worried about preconceived notions about ADHD. You’re not sure about the variety of ADHD coaching services on offer. No question is too silly and no concern is too outlandish to address.
establishing what you want from coaching and how we will best work together.
learning more about ADHD, how it occurs, what it looks like, and creating a solid management plan that works for you.
identifying your unique strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.
thinking about the spheres of your child’s (or your) life and figuring out which ones need attention.
identifying the significant events over the next 12 months that will play a part in your success.
– confidence in dealing with the specialists you are working with
– better knowledge of the condition
– set the foundations of a strong coaching relationship
– a plan to move forward
ADHD Big Picture is completed over two sessions – one hour each, one to two weeks apart. We both have homework, and at the end you have a great tool for managing life with the condition.
ADHD Big Picture is a great place to start for a teenager and their parent/s to see if coaching can be helpful.
The best way to get momentum and see things shift is with weekly coaching. Frequent meetings means you get plenty of support, learn quickly and gain prompt confidence in your ability to manage ADHD.
Many clients start with this and move to less frequent coaching when the tactics they’re implementing start showing real results.
If you’re not ready for the intensity of weekly support, you might prefer a three-month strategic approach. Get fortnightly coaching, with clear goals for the three months ahead. You can start here, or move down to this level after you’ve achieved momentum and clarity with some weekly coaching sessions.
Want to see me on an ad-hoc basis? Not willing to commit to ongoing coaching? You can book single sessions when you need me. If a tricky issue arises and you need expert guidance, a single session (or two) is ideal. You can brief me about the problem and together we’ll formulate an action plan so you can manage it with confidence. This is often used by clients who have successfully moved away from ongoing coaching, but need to check in from time to time. Also useful for advocacy, if you’d like me to attend a meeting with you at your child’s school.
Studying requires concentration, and that’s not easy with ADHD. I teach students with ADHD how to study effectively. I’ll help you plan each study session, understand your motivation, and cut through the overwhelm of juggling multiple subjects with multiple deadlines.
During these sessions my focus is:
I use a term or semester-based approach, but it’s never too late to start.
Teaching students with ADHD is tough. You need to manage the child, keeping them engaged while dealing with twenty or so students in the class, all with their unique needs and gifts… eek!
I give you the confidence to handle students with ADHD, equipping you with the knowledge and tools to understand the condition, work alongside parents and deliver the best outcomes for the child (and your whole class).
Reduce your stress and find the joy in teaching students with ADHD with a teacher training session with me.
You will learn:
Help your students embrace ADHD, so they become learners who are not limited by ADHD.
