One of the recognised resources that helps those with ADHD is coaching.
Coaching will help an individual with ADHD work on their Executive Functions. This is the area of the brain (found in the frontal lobe) that helps us to manage everyday tasks. It is the management system of the brain. e.g. The Conductor of an orchestra.
So the executive functions are mental skills that help us to get things done. If the conductor does not do his job well the orchestra will not perform well.
These are the typical areas where those with ADHD struggle:
- Organizing thoughts and activities
- Mentally evaluating possible outcomes
- Making decisions
- Choosing the most appropriate action
- Prioritizing and planning
- Managing time efficiently
- Sustaining actions toward our goals and the future
- Controlling emotional reactions
- Performing task necessary to carry out decisions
Some common problem areas: with ADHD
Low self-esteem, sleep issues, disorganisation, lack of support, poor time management, under achievement at work, financial management challenges – getting into debt, difficulty making or maintaining relationships, talking too much, fidgeting, racing thoughts, lack self-control, doesn’t stop and think, emotional outbursts, reacts according to feelings and thoughts.
