We have our own ADHD coach on site or available via teletherapy. At NPS, we understand that ADHD coaching is essential, not just a compliment to treatment for someone with ADHD. Time management and organization must be managed differently when someone has ADHD. It is NOT about willpower or trying harder. An ADHD coach has many tools, strategies and resources that uniquely equips and leverages the positive side of ADHD.
Our comprehensive approach is not to diagnose you or your child after a brief conversation and then recommend a medication and send you on your way. After the diagnosis evaluation, we will work with you to explore the various natural alternative approaches and work in coordination with coaches, medical health professionals, and educational specialists, to make sure you are fully supported in your journey.
