From our personal lives as coaches raising ADHD kids, we know that coaching skills are extremely effective in parenting kids with ADHD.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 29, 2013
ImpactADHD opened ADHD Awareness Month this October with the launch of their new website, ImpactADHD.com. The small award-winning business offers innovative approaches to parenting children with ADHD. Since its inception less than two years ago, ImpactADHD has seen a dramatic increase in the demand for its resources and content. The new website better positions the company to meet the needs of those it serves—parents across more than 100 countries (comprising 6,500+ monthly visitors) seeking guidance and support. ImpactADHD offers extensive multimedia learning resources written by nearly 100 experts from a range of disciplines for parents.
ImpactADHD.com, created by parents who are also ADHD experts, offers a radically new approach to an old problem. Raising awareness about the importance of parent management, ImpactADHD shifts parents’ focus to themselves and offers real-world, proven strategies.
“Parents have been the missing link in ADHD treatment for too long,” explained Elaine Taylor-Klaus, ImpactADHD co-founder and certified coach. “While doctors and educators focus on treating kids, parents need support, guidance and creative solutions. They don’t have a lot of time, so it needs to be easy to access. We help parents online and over the phone manage a very complicated medical condition.”
More than 5 million U.S. households struggle with the management of ADHD children. The misunderstood medical condition, which manifests differently from child to child, is marked by varying combinations of inattention, disorganization, impulsivity, emotionality and sometimes hyperactivity. Children with ADHD are unable to self-regulate their behavior, appearing disobedient or disrespectful. As a result, parents of children with the condition tend to be overwhelmed and frustrated.
“From our personal lives as coaches raising ADHD kids, we know that coaching skills are extremely effective in parenting kids with ADHD,” says Diane Dempster, ImpactADHD co-founder and certified coach. “After extensive testing, surveying and consultation, we created a multi-pronged support structure that provides parents with the framework, tools and accountability they need to effectively manage ADHD in their families and rediscover the joy of parenting in the process. Whether they’re taking a home-study course, like “Minimize Meltdowns,” or just reading coaching tips online, we are meeting parents where they are and giving them the skills to manage effectively.”
