Coaching College Students With ADHD
by Patricia Quinn M.D. Nancy A. Ratey Ed.M., MCC & Theresa L. Maitland PhD

This book explains how to help students during their time at college to succeed and enjoy the experience with the help of coaching.

Although coaching is more known about in the United States we are gradually learning more and more how this form of support can help here in United Kingdom.

The book explains how coaching works to provide the support and the tools needed by the student to overcome many of the issues they find difficult. It also explains the role of the coach and how the coach can encourage and support the student to find their own strategies for dealing with issues without telling them how.

The book is written in the form of the problem and how the coach can help the student overcome that problem.

The role of the coach to some extent is to be the sounding board for the student to find their own way of dealing with difficult situations.

Throughout the book I have come to understand more about the role of a coach within the life of a person with ADHD. The coach offers encouragement, accountability, motivation and someone to check in with to help the student focus on tasks and to reach their goals.

The idea of coaching can be beneficial to those who find that they often lose focus and don't complete various tasks, they can check in with the coach at various intervals which had been agreed which enables them to be accountable and therefore achieve their full potential.

Although the book is written regarding college students this would be useful for all those with ADD/ADHD and can be adapted for all age groups.
