To recap our first 3 articles in the series:
- Anyone can call themselves an ADHD coach regardless of their training and qualifications
- The preeminent governing bodies in the coaching profession, ICF, PAAC, develop standards that accredited coach training programs must meet
- ADHD coaches need special training in both the ICF life coaching competencies and the ADHD Coaching competencies (PAAC), plus an understanding of the ADHD brain and other specialty areas related to executive functions.
Now we will talk about the different types of ICF and PAAC certification.
When looking for a quality ADHD coach or ADHD coach training program, it’s important to remember two things:
- Quality coach training programs are accredited (by ICF and PAAC)
- Individual coaches apply for certification as a credentialed professional coach (from the accredited program and/or ICF and PAAC).

Those with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder are often targets of very negative, hurtful comments. When attacked, they experience an amygdala hijack and fall into fight, flight, or freeze, which can trigger hours of rumination.
In our previous articles, we talked about a significant issue in the coaching profession: anyone can call themselves an ADHD coach, regardless of whether they have actually received any training. We also discussed the preeminent governing bodies in the coaching profession and how they help identify quality, well-trained coaches.
Now we’re going to talk more specifically about certification as it relates to Life and ADHD coaches.
