Edge ADHD coaches are trained, experienced, dedicated professionals who have a passion for helping young people with ADHD succeed. All our coaches either have ADHD themselves, or love someone who does, so they understand the challenges of ADHD (ADD) from both a professional and personal point of view.
ADHD coaching is a rapidly growing field. At the Edge Foundation, we have been on the leading edge of developing ADHD coaching standards and curriculum designed to produce ADHD coaches that are ready to work with the unique needs of high school and college students with ADHD. Some of the field’s top experts have been involved in developing our program including Nancy Ratey, Patricia Quinn and Jodi Sleeper-Triplett.
