Hot off the press: ADDvocacy Information Packets

I have been working hard all summer to be prepared for this upcoming school year.  Today, I was able to print off the first wave of information for my coaching clients this fall.  In just over a week we will be back to school and I intend to help my clients get organized, reduce anxiety and make a smooth transition into this year of studies.  This is going to be a great year!!

Do you want to know exactly what an ADHD Coach does?

People are always asking me what i can offer as an ADHD Coach.  I recently came across this blog post by my mentor and the president of the ADD Coach Academy, where I completed my training last spring.  David Giwerc is a Master Certified ADHD Coach and describes what an ADHD Coach can do for you in the link below!!

Mental health is an integral part of ADHD and a number of the co-existing conditions are addressed in this article!

This is a perfect article which illustrates I am pushing to introduce Peer Support to NSCC! Most people with ADHD have co-existing conditions and Peer Support Specialists can help with understanding all of these!  New for this year is the Peer Support Group facilitated by a trained Peer Support Specialist with the help of myself and a few volunteers.
