About the Class

The Advanced ADHD Coaching Master Class is for coaches with experience working with individuals with AD/HD who are looking to gain more knowledge and skill in working with this population. This is an eighteen-hour class. In order to take this class, a student must have taken the 12 hour ADHD Coaching class or get the permission of the trainer. Prerequisite: ADHD Coaching Class or permission of trainer.

At the conclusion of this class, each participant will have built on their toolkit of practical interventions and have the opportunity participate in mentor group coaching. Each class member will coach an individual with ADHD of their choosing and get feedback on your coaching from the instructor and other class members.

In this interactive class, participants are required to bring cases of individuals with AD/HD they have worked with in coaching or other helping interactions. We will use these cases to elaborate on the many approaches one can take when working with this population.
