ADHD (student) or Academic coaching takes place within
developmentally appropriate conversations, yet coaching conversations have special qualities that set them apart from regular conversations. When you’re having a regular conversation, you really don’t know where it’s going to take you. However, in a coaching conversation you have an environment, a structure of focused intention, the student’s or client’s agenda, methods and models, and some desirable outcomes you’re both striving for. So, a coaching conversation then is a purposeful interaction or quest with a goal of creating awareness and imitating action for long-term change.
