ADHD Coach Training Testimonials



The ADD Coach Academy met and exceeded my expectations...


You learn the fundamentals of coaching throughout the curriculum and learn to apply those principles in real-life coaching situations. And there is plenty of chance to practice those skills.

I have used the coaching skills I have learned not only in a coaching situation, but in the course of my daily practice with good results. I have seen adults with ADHD learn more about themselves through the coaching sessions and become more empowered to reach goals and fulfill dreams that they never thought could be possible.

I highly recommend the ADD Coach Academy to anyone whose passion is to learn how to most effectively be a personal coach. No matter how you plan to specialize with coaching, ADDCA gives you what you need to know to begin your career.

I do believe that I found my "true voice" through ADDCA...


Hearing David in '07 started the journey for me, and life has not been the same. Though I've sung opera for years, I do believe that I found my "true voice" through ADDCA. You have been a great blessing in my life!

Thanks to the ADD Coach Academy I have been able to finally “live up to my full potential”...


I had completed my Masters of Social Work, became licensed in Illinois and had studied countless hours to learn all I could about ADHD. I can say however, that all the studying I had done as well as learning all the theories and therapy strategies in graduate school, did not prepare me as well as what I learned in my ADD Coach Academy Program. It really opened my eyes as well to see how inadequately the therapeutic world was prepared to work with those of us diagnosed with ADHD.

Thanks to the ADD Coach Academy I have been able to finally “live up to my full potential” and utilize the strengths and talents that were locked inside for so many years. If it weren’t for the ADDCA training, my personal and professional life would be more chaotic. Thanks for the clarity!

Program is wonderful both in coaching and in the substantive area of ADHD...


I have been a psychotherapist and coach and it appeared to me that people with ADHD are not always treated either with respect or knowledge. It seems that many coaches who are not trained specifically for ADHD coaching will not be able to receive nor listen to a potentially client properly. I also began developing a great relationship with David Giwerc at the ICF Conference in 2005 and trusted that he would have an excellent program.

My expectations have been met. The program is wonderful both in coaching and in the substantive area of ADHD. As a person who does NOT have a diagnosis of ADHD it is instructive listening and interacting with people who do. Its to important for a coaching professional to understand the clientele they are working with.

One of the most wonderful things of the ADD Coach Academy is that we have practice time. I practice coaching every week with a buddy coach and we apply the principles and theories that we have learned in class. I have also used the theories learned to approach new clients.

When you think of coaching clients who have some degree of ADHD there is no better place to train than the ADD Coach Academy. After one phone class you know the passion about the subject and coaching that David Giwerc demonstrates. He makes everyone in the class right, actively listens, and brings out the students who want to ask questions but are concerned about asking questions. I know that I have learned a great deal that supplements my understanding of ADHD in both theory and practice. I thoroughly endorse the methods of teaching and the quality of the materials and the instruction.

Something you won't find anywhere else...


After my first teleclass with David Giwerc, I knew he was the person I wanted to work with in learning about ADHD. I have a son that was diagnosed with ADHD. I had read every book I could find on the subject and ask questions of anyone I thought would be able to enlightened me on the subject.

Well to my surprise David and his staff at ADDCA not only made it a pleasure to learn, but gave me information I have never come across, like ADHD Strengths! Who Knew. It was a wonderful learning experience and it gave me the confidence to continue on the road to becoming an ADD Coach!

If you have the need for information for yourself, your child or just want to become an ADHD Coach, ADDCA is the school for you. No stone goes unturned and it is done with love and understanding with caring, open-minded, non-judgmental teachers. Something you won't find anywhere else.

ADHD Education Testimonials



My own transformation process mirrored a lot of the concepts taught in Personal Transformation course...


My decision to come to ADDCA for ADHD Coach Training came at the end of my  Personal Transformation course that started when I sold my printing business at the end of 2009. While still happy with my level of success in the printing business, I felt my spiritual gifts and passions were not being fulfilled.

My own transformation process mirrored a lot of the concepts taught in the Personal Transformation course. I spent time reviewing times in my life where I was both successful and felt fulfilled and found the common theme in these times was helping people to grow and be fulfilled themselves. I also spent a lot of time thinking and refining what was really important to me and aligning those revelations with how I chose to give my time to others outside my family. I think my most important learning was incorporating tools like those taught in Personal Transformation (Rainbows, Magical Moments, Barriers to Attention, etc) and re-examining where you are today help you focus on where you want to go and ensure that you get there without a lot of wasted time. I am very excited to start the Coaching Modules.

You owe it to yourself to learn from the incredible people at ADDCA...


When I joined ADDCA's free teleclass I knew I had found my "tribe". Finally someone really understands what it means to be ADHD. I signed up right away. Simply ADHD and Personal Transformation, have been extremely informative and very enjoyable. I have gained an understanding of myself and a wonderful way to help others. If you want relief after a lifetime of struggle, you owe it to yourself to learn from the incredible people at ADDCA.

Finally you've helped me to create a dream for myself again


.....Finally you've helped me to create a dream for myself again Taking the time to focus on my purpose has helped me to discover that I am passionate about helping others and the world to better understand ADD and how it affects our lives and our relationships. I can now envision myself as an intuitive coach who can inspire the world one person at a time.

Kristin Kelly




"Through this Personal Transformation course, I have learned so much more about myself."


...."Through this course, I have learned so much more about myself. I recognize there is so much more to discover.  I am so excited about the journey I am embarking on, with a great sense of joy and confidence and surety. It is exhilarating to think I can live my purpose. To be daily who I know I really am! Who am I? I am someone who embraces that I am to continue on my journey, learning and searching for meaning. To help empower and encourage others… to take the first step. For me to be me, I am an example of exuberance, love, joy, hope and possibilities. That is living my potential! "...

"There were many AH-HA's for me throughout the course as both a person who has ADHD (diagnosed in my mid 50's) and as a coach focused on helping ADHD clients transform their lives...


Thank you again for such great knowledge, wisdom, caring, support and coaching - it was a great class and both of you made learning fun and exciting."

Allan Weiser




I  feel that after Personal Transformation I know myself better and that can help me to understand


I feel a better person and I think this class have just made me feel more secure about becoming a coach, I think that everything is done with passion always in balance with your head and heart has a great a outcome, because passion is what drive us and love is what make us do things with care, knowing that your head is in the right place in balance with the rest equal to good results.

I want to continue with this program and have the opportunity to help people around me, not just because I have a son that it is my inspiration but because I want to be part of the people that make a difference in the world.

Professional ADHD Coach Training Program Testimonials



Thank you to all of you involved in ADDCA for bringing us this enriching program...


I learned not only basic coaching, I learned about going deeper with the client to produce real change. I learned about the brain wiring that causes so many challenges to me and to my clients. But I also learned how our amazing brain wiring can cause us to be more creative, more focused (hyperfocus) and help us to do what we love best, which for me is three things at a time. I got to understand myself better and my clients and I got to really know how to reach them and to get them unstuck. I learned about facilitating their transformation into the person they dared even dream they could be.

I joined the PACG program for more in depth study of how to coach my clients to great success, the success that they were now choosing to have. I got what I joined for. And I got more. The classes were interesting and fun. I developed friendships with many of my classmates that I still have today. I got to learn with people who care about what I care about. This was a wonderful, enriching program in every way. To me still, it is a no-brainer. If there were an advanced-advanced program put out by ADDCA, I would register for that one as well. Thank you to all of you involved in ADDCA for bringing us this enriching program.

Chana Klein, MA, PCC, CEEMP,  PACG

The curriculum is well-designed and extremely comprehensive...


As a long time ADHD coach, I value the skills I learned and the degree of professional expertise I gained by training at the ADD Coach Academy. A member of the second class of the Basic ADHD Coach Training Program and the first class of the Advanced ADHD Coach Training Program, I definitely received First Class training in both programs!!! The curriculum is well designed and extremely comprehensive, while David Giwerc and his staff are masterful coaches as well as excellent teachers and role models. I have referred many prospective coaches to ADDCA through the years, and will continue to do so. From my perspective, ADDCA is the only ADHD coach training program that gives students a solid foundation in general life coaching and ADHD coaching with a thorough understanding of both.

Permission to Proceed



"David Giwerc has produced a book as chock full of energy, wisdom, and inspiration as he is in person."


"Readers of David Giwerc’s book “Permission to Proceed” will discover it is essentially two books in one.  David guides readers through his personal journey of self-discovery, both his diagnosis with ADHD as an adult and the recognition of the various passions and skills that previously had been stifled.  As one of the pioneers and leaders of the ADHD Coaching movement, David also conveys the insights from his nearly two decades of experience training coaches and helping adults with ADHD to transcend their difficulties in order to unlock their talents and passions.  The result is that David Giwerc has produced a book as chock full of energy, wisdom, and inspiration as he is in person."

"This is a book written with incredible insight and sensitivity, to help the adult with ADHD start their journey of self-awareness..."


"I love this book. David Giwerc, in Permission to Proceed: Creating a Life of Passion, Purpose and Possibility for Adults with ADHD begins by masterfully sharing highly personal stories of his own life and those of clients he's worked with, to engage the reader. He then gently, yet powerfully explains techniques and methods to help people with ADHD move forward.

This is a man who "has been there" and who openly describes his early frustrations, hurt and pain. He takes his audience on a journey, all the while providing a massive toolkit full of pragmatic tips, exercises and strategies to help people become "unstuck."

This is a book written with incredible insight and sensitivity, to help the adult with ADHD start their journey of self-awareness, which is the first step towards change. I will be recommending this to all my clients and colleagues."

What Professionals and Educators are Saying...



Professionals & Educators

Many of our students are therapists, psychologists, social workers, attorneys, doctors, coaches, educators, parents and other adults interested in pursuing a career as an ADD Coach.

Many of our graduates become full or part-time ADD Coaches; some become ADHD advocates, while others are interested in helping themselves or family members with their own ADHD challenges.



What Educators are saying….

As a former special education teacher and Orton-Gillingham tutor, I was seeking a program that worked one-on-one with individuals with ADHD. I was interested in providing support for individuals with Attention Deficit. At first I was apprehensive about the teleclass, but quickly realized how convenient it was for me to participate from my home, office and sometimes my car. The interaction during class was interesting and I always felt like my questions and/or input was welcomed and honored. The personal growth I have felt from taking this class has truly made a huge impact on my life. As I pay more attention to my own strengths, I feel better equipped to listen and look for strengths in others.
I had the good fortune of taking this class with a remarkable group of individuals. David Giwerc (it took me 3 months to learn how to pronounce his name) is an awesome instructor! He is encouraging, funny, loving, supportive and he teaches with such a passion! This is an experience I will take with me for a lifetime.

This is the best commitment I ever made to myself. Whether working with students, young adults or adults, this class will bring greater insight into the powerful impact coaching can provide. I look forward to helping others uncover their gifts and talents and become more aware of the strengths they have to offer.

What Physicians are saying….

I really love my ADHD practice but realized that there was more to helping my clients than just medication, even though that is an important part. I chose the ADD Coach Academy to learn how I could better serve my clients to help them 'move forward' in their lives once they have been properly diagnosed and given the right medical treatment.
The ADD Coach Academy met and exceeded my expectations. You learn the fundamentals of coaching throughout the curriculum and learn to apply those principles in real-life coaching situations. And there is plenty of chance to practice those skills.

I have used the coaching skills I have learned not only in a coaching situation, but in the course of my daily practice with good results. I have seen adults with ADHD learn more about themselves through the coaching sessions and become more empowered to reach goals and fulfill dreams that they never thought could be possible.
