Elizabeth has extensive experience and expertise in developing and implementing student IEPs, Functional Behavioral Analyses, and Behavior Intervention Plans.

Mental Health Providers
An ADHD coach can serve as a valuable member of your patient’s support system and as a complementary addition to the behavior and academic plans already in place. Help your patient focus on managing the daily challenges of ADHD such as managing deadlines, remembering and arriving to appointments on time, and getting out of the house with all needed items and paperwork. Coaching will help patients learn to articulate what is and is not working in their lives, and will assist them in thinking through and capturing questions for their health care provider — a skill that is helpful to a physician diagnosing and treating an individual with ADHD. With the support of an ADHD coach, patients can also create an effective system that reminds them to take their medications throughout the day and comply with medical plans.
If you are an educator seeking additional support for students at all levels, including college and graduate programs, ADHD coaching may be a viable solution. Elizabeth can work with educators directly, or serve as a referral for educators to give to students and parents looking for additional support for themselves or their student.
Whether your organization is looking to learn more about ADHD to better serve your employees or to better serve your clients, ADHD coaching can help you reach your organizational objectives.
