Why ADHD Inside Out? 

Educating the general public is always a primary focus undergirding the treatment of any disorder; with ADHD this is of paramount importance because of the many myths surrounding this topic. 

Myths, such as:

  • "ADHD doesn’t exist  is over diagnosed.. is caused by bad parenting"
  • “Adults don’t have ADHD, so your child will outgrow it"
  • "Everyone has ADHD symptoms to some degree; it’s no big deal!"
  • "ADHD is an excuse to be __________" (fill in the blank with some derogatory label)
  • “Medication is the only way to deal with ADHD”

Coaching reaches beyond treating the symptoms and explaining the facts about ADHD. It reaches into the very motivations and aspirations of the individual, empowering them to turn their dreams and plans into actions.


I hope this website is a beneficial beginning for those who have been diagnosed with ADHD, as well as their family, friends, teachers, employers, etc.
I also hope to encourage those who may have been unsuccessful at adequately treating ADHD with medication or with knowledge, to reach out for help from someone who understands that neither of those is enough. 

The Centre for ADHD Awareness, Canada (CADDAC) summarizes the findings of 80 ADHD studies, saying;

“research shows that medication treatment alone does not improve 
many of the skills required to be academically and socially successful”...“it is essential that treatment be comprehensive, collaborative, and multimodal.  Presently, many proven non-medication treatments for ADHD, such as cognitive behaviour therapy,
 ADHD coachingparent training, to mention just a few recommended in these guidelines...”
