At the Edge Foundation we know from personal experience how frustrating it can be to watch our children flounder. Even if they are bright and well meaning, they just can’t seem to keep it together, at least not without a lot of help. Watching the failures happen time and time again is maddening and heartbreaking. And those failures add up. For both of you.
We also know how hard it is to find the right solution: medications, diet, supplements, brain exercises, therapy, tutors, 504s, IEPs … the list of possible interventions goes on.
Research shows that it is a combination of things, a so-called multimodal approach, that often works best. The traditional multimodal approach is a combination of medication, therapy, and life style changes.
While professional coaching is not a substitute for this approach, at the Edge Foundation we believe personal coaching is a critical and highly effective part of the solution. More and more experts in the treatment of ADD and ADHD are advocating for coaching as the piece that has been missing up until now.
