In this edition of Attention Talk Radio, host Jeff Copper talks with Dr. Joel Young (www.rcbm.net) about the realities and challenges of working with the ADHD crowd, in both diagnosing ADHD and prescribing medication. If you want to know what it is like to deal with the other side, listen in as this is a very insightful show.
ADDCA coaches Caroline Maguire, ACCG, PCC Cary Colleran, AAC Mindy Schwartz, AAC Keith Griffin, AAC were recently featured in a Reader's Digest online article.
Most of the other training advertised online will give you a few general tips about managing ADHD. Those can help.
However, our program is designed to actually improve the quality of your life.
The full curriculum is an accredited program that trains people to become ADHD Coaches.
The first course (Simply ADHD) is an 8 week course about ADHD and learning to manage it. If you or someone you love struggles with ADHD, this course will literally change your life.
A message from David Giwerc, MCAC, MCC, Founder and President of ADD Coach Academy:
"I wanted to make you all of aware an excellent article featuring ADDCA's Director of Family Training, Caroline Maguire, ACCG, PCC, M. ED, which appeared on July 14th on the prestigious US News and World Report website.
It is very informative with great strategies for those coaches who are working with families who have ADHD kids. It is also a great resource for parents to help with establishing play dates and with a few of their child's social skill challenges."
ADDCA is excited to announce the Fundamentals of ADHD Coaching for Families program is now an approved track within the ADDCA comprehensive coach training program as accredited by ICF.

Why can’t I be perfect? Why can’t I be the best? Why can’t I be the center? Why can’t I be the richest? Why can’t I be revered? Why can’t I be the star? Why can’t I be …? …and when I paused, I realized:
ADDentifiers are words that seem similar in meaning but when articulated identify the shifts the ADHDer is missing.
ADDentifiers describe the lower level of functioning and encourage the client to move up to the next level of ADDentification.

All ADHD coaches (and their training) are not created equal
David Giwerc, MCAC, MCC, and Jeff Copper, MBA, PCC, PCAC, CPCC, ACG talk about the importance of going through an accredited coach training program.
Earning a certification from an accredited ADHD life coach training program distinguishes you as an elite professional ADHD coach.
Accreditation Matters article series - Part 1 – Part 2 – Part 3 – Part 4
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).
