The pervasive, unmentionable problem: too many write for meds without any training on the reality of diagnosis or treatment specifics for ADHD, thinking that labels provided sufficient maps for mind travel. Galileo would not approve.
I have always believed that in order to understand what's going on in the mind of ADD/ADHD clients, a coach must first understand what's going on in the brain of ADD clients. Only then can coaching be effective in guiding ADD individuals toward lives of power, effectiveness and the joy of accomplishment.
From "bad mothers," to "insufficient corporal punishment" the limited psychological implications of both ADHD diagnosis and treatment often prove woefully insufficient to provide consistent treatment results.
