David Giwerc, Founder & President of ADD Coach Academy, recently appeared on ADHD reWired with Eric Tivers.
In this interview, David talks about what coaching does for people with ADHD. He also describes what the purpose of ADHD coaching is, and maybe more importantly, what coaching is NOT.
Our friends at Totally ADD created this wonderful video that clearly, and entertainingly, provides information to help you easily understand what ADHD coaching is, and how it can help those struggling with ADHD.
“If he could, he would.” Children with ADHD don’t always act rudely or awkwardly on purpose — sometimes, they simply lack the executive function skills to keep up with confusing social norms and fast-paced conversations. Here’s how parents can reframe these social challenges and better bolster weak skills.

Your uniqueness is also your creativity.
It helps you think outside the box and aligns with your strengths/values.
It helps you with problem solving.
What should you do if you have ADHD? The answer is often revealed by understanding who you are. In this episode of Attention Talk Radio, ADHD coach Jeff Copper interviews master certified coach David Giwerc, MCAC, MCC, and Founder and President of ADD Coach Academy.
Jeff identifies what he attends to when he's coaching people to help them understand who they are and what they are all about.
David talks about how he uses character strengths to help individuals do the same.
Then they compare their different approaches to understand the contrast between the way Jeff and David think based on “who” they are and use that to explain what careers have worked for them in the past and how they're very different. If you are curious about “who” you are, you'll want to listen.
Here is an article where Caroline Maguire, PCC, ACCG, and Director of ADDCA's ADHD Coaching for Families program, provides a solid list of strategies to improve the management of your brain and activate your executive functions. She also mentions medications and what I like to call "the Pill does not give you the skills." However it can put you on a level playing field so that you can use the strategies Caroline has identified.

This is an important article to read so you can be ready for the ignorance that usually accompanies negative words about undiagnosed ADHD behavior. They simply don't understand and need to be educated by well-trained ADHD coaches. Caroline Maguire, PCC, ACCG, and Director of ADDCA's ADHD Coaching for Families program, has some wonderful suggestions for specific language you can use to diffuse the condescending negative remarks made by those who think they know ADHD.
How to respond to others who express genuine concern, sarcastic comments or judgmental words.
