Edge Foundation is pleased to have Jodi Sleeper-Triplett leading our coach training sessions. Jodi was the first person to offer training courses specifically designed for coaching youth with ADHD. With the Edge Foundation, Jodi has provided the field invaluable leadership by designing training that ensures consistent use of protocols to provide coaches with the necessary skills and tools to coach students and young adults who have ADHD.
Jodi Sleeper-Triplett brings over 20 years of experience working with youth and 12 years focused on coaching youth with ADHD. She is in a unique position to know the intricacies of the coaching process that create success with younger clients.
Sleeper-Triplett was recently published in Pediatric Nursing Journal. The article, “The Effectiveness of Coaching for Children and Teens with ADHD” focuses on the value of coaching for youth with ADHD and provides specific strategies for professionals and parents working with this population.
Jodi has acquired coaching expertise from both the life coaching and ADHD coaching arenas. She believes that life coach training is an essential component of her work in ADHD coaching and training. The Edge Foundation training certification is designed to provide a full complement of skills to life coaches passionate about creating success with young clients, one step at a time.
The next coaching session led by Sleeper-Triplett will be held on Wednesdays, 12 – 2 PM ET, running from January 28 – April 1, 2009.
The training will focus on:
- special coaching techniques for working with students and young adults;
