Russell A. Barkley, Ph.D.
Dr. Russell Barkley has specialized in ADHD for more than 30 years and is currently a Research Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the SUNY Upstate Medical University in Syracuse, New York. He is author of numerous scientific papers and over a dozen books on ADHD, including the best selling Taking Charge of ADHD: The Complete, Authoritative Guide for Parents.
"Another potentially helpful area of intervention for adults with ADHD is personal coaching."
Barkley further said, in the above cited book (p 726), regarding the efficacy of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (which is very similar to coaching) for people with ADHD :
"Recent data indicate that when this protocol [ADHD Adapted CBT - McDermott & Wilens, 2000; as cited in Safren et al, 2005] was combined with medication, two-thirds of 26 adults whose ADHD was previously unresponsive to treatment were found to manifest clinically significant improvement."
