ADHD Doctor? Psychologist? Therapist? Finding the Best Treatment Professional
Teaming up with the right doctor, psychiatrist, or other medical professional makes all the difference in managing ADHD symptoms successfully. Learn the benefits and limitations of each ADHD treatment professional.
The ADHD Coach
An ADHD coach is not a medical professional. There are no standards for licensing coaches currently, but certification programs do exist. Coaches are also bound to a code of ethics and to core competencies. Coaches are not able to diagnose ADHD or prescribe medications. They work with individuals to improve specific lifestyle skills, such as organization, and to find ways to better manage ADHD symptoms.
