Children with ADHD often suffer from low self-esteem and a feeling of being different, worthless, or of failure. They compare themselves - consciously or unconsciously - to their siblings or peers, and come up short, whether academically, socially, or both.
For a parent, watching your child struggle is one of the hardest things in the universe. But feeling helpless is worse.
ADHD coaching for children emphasizes developing a feeling of empowerment, as well as boosting self-esteem, through emphasis of the child's positive traits and the various advantages that come with having ADHD.
Together, we work on developing helpful day-to-day habits, as well as good study habits and critical problem-solving skills. During our coaching sessions, children learn through charts, worksheets, and games how to identify and evaluate the various options open to them, as well as how to choose the best option.
For children who need remedial work as well, Alana offers integrated remedial and coaching sessions, where the time is split 40/20 between remedial teaching and ADHD coaching.
