ADHD Coach Training


Many people from all over the country have been in touch with the American Coaching Association regarding opportunities for ADD coaches’ training. ACA provides periodic ADD coaches’ training programs at various locations which are delivered in a three-day workshop format. This training is invaluable for the novice who wants to learn about coaching as well as for the experienced coach who wants to broaden or deepen their repertoire of skills. The American Coaching Association is seeking individuals who would like to organize a training workshop in their community. This is how it works: For training in a weekend workshop format, ACA will come to your training location if you put together a group of 20 or more interested individuals. (ACA will also provide you with a list of individuals in your geographic area who have been in touch with us about coaches training.)
