Alexandria, VA – According to the most recent estimates from the Center for Disease Control, approximately 6.4 million children between the ages of 4-17 years have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD, a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects a child's ability to learn. Children who suffer from ADHD often display an inability to focus and experience difficulty completing tasks. Still ADHD has nothing to do with intelligence. It's all about how the brain processes information. Unfortunately, there exists a great disconnect. Many teachers don't fully understand ADHD and lack the skills to effectively educate students who struggle with this disorder. Jodi Sleeper-Triplett is the founder of JST Coaching, which offers coach training specifically focused on young people with ADHD, executive functioning difficulties and learning disabilities. ?We look at kids as little human beings who simply don't have the skills to do certain things yet,? explains Jodi. ?We have to develop those skills to sharpen their ability to retain what's being taught. We take things a little bit slower, but it's important for children with a learning disability to understand there are things they can do really well.? Jodi is the first person in the world to develop coach training focused on children, teens and college students struggling with ADHD. She says she's dedicated her life to this work is because of the level of shame, embarrassment and frustration associated with ADHD. ?What I find makes the biggest difference as a coach is being able to sit with a young person and explain to them it's not about what you can't do, it's about what you can do,? says Jodi. ?The process can be frustrating, but your coach will support you through the process and you do have the ability to learn.?
