ADHD, defined as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders of childhood. Usually first diagnosed in childhood and often lasts into adulthood (CDC, 2021). It changes with time, environmental and emotional stressors, age, hormones, and other factors, therefore creating more and more challenges for teens and college students, as well as children and older adults.

As students grow and face new life situations, ADHD can get in the way and make things more complicated and stressful. Engaging with a certified and licensed speech/language pathologist life coach, such as Lori Melnitsky, can bring many benefits and unimaginable positive outcomes for teens and college students. Below are five different and life-changing ways ADHD life coaching will help scholars get through their education and personal life subtracting additional stress and anxiety, among other physical and emotional tensions.

1. Establish A Healthy And Productive Routine

There are three major types of ADHD, and the first one, the combined type, is the most common. Hyperactivity and impulsive behavior as well as lack of attention and being easily distracted are the most frequent symptoms. An ADHD coach can help students establish healthy boundaries and routines to ensure productivity, manage electronics, and more.

2. Create A Goal Tracker

To help students develop organization and executive function skills, creating a to-do list and managing how much do they take to complete it can help teens and college scholars to practice prioritizing tasks and getting along with deadlines as well as multiple duties that they must complete in the same day.

Further, breaking down each activity into smaller separate ones can help with this task as well.

3. Organize The Semester

Diving into college is a new, fascinating but scary moment in a student’s life. With an ADHD life coach, students can get help organizing and scheduling their semester to do and deliver every assignment in the best condition and on time, as well as properly preparing for tests, lectures and encouraging them to talk to professors to clear out any doubts.

A life coach specializing in ADHD can also help students and parents choose the best college according to their needs and goals.

4. Help Transition From High School To College

As described in the beginning, transitioning from high school to college is a tough process for most people, where responsibilities tend to change and arise as well as previews structures. Life coaching for ADHD students can help lessen this load while practicing organization skills, managing time and productivity, and deciding the best career path according to one’s desires and goals.

5. Stimulate Self-Care

When students develop poor sleeping schedules, bad eating habits as well as forget to take their medication, self-care becomes neglected. When engaging with an ADHD life coach, students can focus on themselves in a controlled and supported space, with a professional ready to help when they feel lost and overwhelmed.

ADHD coaching is an effective way that you can help an individual remain accountable and develop goals to help them succeed and get things done.
