    I live in Stamford Connecticut. My child has been diagnosed with ADHD and an Audiological deficit. Child is on IEP. I am looking for a coach that would be able to help him with his executive functioning issues and that would be able to help him work around any audiological deficit…

    How would I go about this for finding a coach in my geographic area?

    If requested, can child’s public school make a recommendation for such a coach? are they required to? The school system did the evaluation and diagnosis that led to the ADHD and audiological discovery.

    Any insights are greatly appreciated.

    Most coaches work via phone or online video call, so geographic area isn’t as important. There are many ADHD Coaches listed in the ADDitude Directory here: https://directory.additudemag.com/listing/guide/adhd-coaches. You can narrow the list by looking for those that really hone in on executive functioning skills. There are also a few EF coaches out there.
