Selecting your Edge Coach

So you’ve seen the video and read the research that demonstrates that ADHD coaching helps students be more successful in school – and now you’re ready to take the plunge and get a coach. You’re probably wondering how we find a coach that’s matched to your needs.

First and foremost, it is all about the connection you make with your coach.  It’s up to you – not your parents – to make the final decision about whether a coach feels right for you. And it all starts with the “Coach Match” process.

You already know that the Edge Foundation has recruited and trained some of the best coaches in the profession. If you choose an Edge Coach you know you are getting a seasoned life coach who is specially trained in working with teens and young adults with ADHD, someone who has been trained and mentored in this unique coaching specialty.

The Edge Foundation ADHD Coach Match Maker

Start by completing the Sign Up form. Don’t worry if the form looks intimidating or asks you questions you aren’t ready to answer.  You can always give Denise, our Coach Match Maker, a call to get your questions answered.

We ask you questions because we want to find out as much as we can about your specific needs.  Many people with ADHD, for example, have other issues they need addressed – like dyslexia, anxiety or depression.  The more information you provide us about your specific background and needs, the better the match Denise will be able to make.

Don’t worry, all the information you provide to us is confidential and won’t be shared with anyone without your permission.

If your parents are involved, we’ll also talk to them – with your permission of course – because they probably know you better than anyone else than you.

An ADHD coach suited to your needs and situation

After Denise has gathered all of the available information about what you are looking for, she’ll make a Coach Match.  She’ll send you background information about a coach picked specially for you. You’ll also be provided her contact information.  Before you agree to working with a coach, you’ll have an opportunity to interview with him.  You’ll have a chance to get to know the person a bit and see if he feels comfortable.  If you think the match is a good fit,  you’re done.  If you want to interview other coaches, Denise will help you with that.

We want to make it as painless as possible

Denise knows each one of our coaches well and strives to make it easy for you by making a good match for you the first time.

Some people are overwhelmed by the idea of interviewing coaches and ask us to pick someone for them. We can do that.  Other people want to interview several coaches to get a better feel for the differences between them.  We can do that too.

Bottom line, we have dozens of talented, well-trained, and experienced coaches for you to work with.  We are commited to finding a coach suited to your need and confident that you’ll find a good match at Edge.

    Hello,

    My name is Jim Rollince from Gym Source and I’m a member of the creative writing department at Gym Source. With obesity rates increasing, and learning disorders becoming increasingly more common, some would argue that some of these childhood ailments are slipping between the cracks of care.

    I’d like to take a moment to discuss this with you and the readers of https://edgefoundation.org/blog. Please take a moment to consider this as it would be a pleasure to contribute!

    Nevertheless, I look forward to hearing back from you and hopefully having the chance to collaborate in one way or another.

    Kindly,

    Jim
