What is AD/HD

AD/HD is a compound disorder: the common core features include distractibility (poor sustained attention to tasks), impulsivity (impaired impulse control and delay of gratification), restlessness (physical or mental), difficulty sustaining effort and completing tasks, and disorganization.

"What medical research has shown is that in people with ADHD there is an area in the brain involving the frontal lobe and basal ganglia, which is underactive. These areas of the brain are responsible for inhibiting or controlling impulsive and disruptive behavior."
--Dr. Peter Jaksa (www.AD/HD.org)

Because the neurological causes of AD/HD are not always apparent, both people with AD/HD and society in general tend to view the challenges of AD/HD as moral failures. That is why AD/HDers often blame themselves and have low self-esteem.

Coaching can be the external guide for the person with AD/HD by helping with planning, organizing, prioritization, self-awareness, and task-completion.
