- The Need. For a seed to grow, it
must receive nourishment from water, the sun and nutrients. Similarly,

for us in managing ADD through major transitions.

self starters to create an environment that is ideally suited for them
to succeed. We also help their parents provide the right amount of support,
structure, and independence.

weekly sessions reinforces learning and maintains progress.

ADDvance Case Study. Heather, one of
our ADDvance coaching clients is 16, a soccer star, and seeking more independence
from her nagging Mom for her last 2 years of high school. She hopes to
win a soccer scholarship to college. Heather lost her iphone, kept forgetting
to close the garage, was having difficulty managing her daily schedule,
procrastinating on her homework, then staying up late to cram, and feeling
tired much of the time. We helped Heather develop -- memory systems for
keeping track or her stuff, new ways to focus on her studies, organization
systems for managing her schedule, more attention to the details &
not over-scheduling, diet changes to have more energy, and practices to
start each day with meditation and reflection on the day ahead.
