Having ADD, ADHD and Executive Functioning concerns requires a lot of work. There’s no easy cure and it requires a lot of work and commitment. In my work with clients, this is the main reason I see for not achieving success.

I get that spending 45-minutes in my office isn’ fun or exciting. When we deal with something an individual has challenges with; it almost feels like going to the principal’s office. If a client is willing to put in the time and effort, the individual can improve performance.

I worked with one family that would cancel appointments regularly at the last minute. Something would always come up. Then when the family wasn’t seeing results, it became the professional’s fault. If a client comes when he or she chooses to do so, there’s no consistency or commitment. Whenever I get a perspective new client, I always ask how committed the individual is to the process. Setting unrealistic expectations of a professional doesn’t help anyone with the process.

I advise any family to be sure that improving performance is something their committed to time-wise, financially and have the motivation to succeed. If one chooses to work with me as a coach, I need to see a level of commitment. It’s impossible for me to fix something quickly. My work takes some time.
