Frequently Asked Questions

We know every student and situation is unique. Please feel free to reach out to talk more about your questions as they relate to your student!

Free Consultation
Is Your Program Only Offered Virtually?
Hi! Yes, currently, we are only working with students virtually. It actually works great for busy schedules! It also works well for clients who do not transition well to leave the house. No more having to argue about getting shoes on and out the door or running late.
My Student Has Struggled with Virtual School, Will This Work?
There is research that shows that virtual academic coaching is just as effective as in-person coaching. Also, our coaching sessions are designed for the focus fatigue many ADHD people struggle with. We honor keeping things in a 20-30 minute, manageable time frame. ADHD students frequently struggle with virtual school because it is often up to 6-8 hours without a break.
How Are Coaches Assigned?
We put a lot of thought into coach matching. When you sign up, we will send both a parent and student onboarding form. Once we have those back, we will narrow down our coaches to 2-3 that really fit your student’s needs and have a proven success record with those, fit their personality, and times they prefer coaching. Each of our coaches have a bio about themselves and their picture ~ we will send those most qualified coaches' bios to your student and they get to choose their own coach!

You know you are getting the most qualified coach, but your student has the autonomy to choose who they want to work with.

We are always happy to switch your coach if you feel your coach is not a good fit for you. It is as easy as asking for new choices.
Do You Require a Minimum Time Contract When I Enroll?
No, all of our programs are month to month and we do not have minimum time contracts beyond your current month.

We recommend a minimum of 3-6 months to ensure change is habituated. When students leave coaching too early often old habits creep back in, leaving everyone frustrated.

How Long Are Sessions?
Sessions are between 20 and 30 minutes each.
What Age Group Do You Work With?
We specialize in working with clients that are 12+ who would benefit from gaining an understanding of how to manage their ADHD as well as gaining strategies and routines to simplify their daily lives. College Students having difficulty managing schoolwork, social life, and life on their own are especially fit for this program. That means ANY AGE going to pick up college courses or certifications. We have student from freshman year to taking their medical boards.
Why Not Elementary School?
Elementary students require a unique set of strategies as well as more in depth parental support. Our program is designed to foster independence and self awareness with teens and young adults. If you have a younger student, please ask us about our 8-13 year old Sprout program where we have coaches specially trained for this age group.
Do I Have to Be Diagnosed With ADHD to Benefit?
Absolutely not! We have many students without a formal diagnosis. We also know Executive Function Skills can be impacted due to many different things including ADHD, Autism Spectrum, Anxiety, Depression, or just having weak skills! It is not important to us why your student is struggling, just that they are, and we are here to help.
Does your Program Go Beyond Just Academic Goals?
We include all of life into coaching and action plans. We help students check and respond to emails, healthy eating and sleeping habits, positive scheduling, and even helping to balance the “want tos” and the “need tos”. Again, each student’s situation is unique and we create action plans based on their needs each day, whatever those may be.
How Long Does Coaching Last?
Every student is unique and programs that promise certain wins within a set amount of coaching time are not being honest in their approach. Progress relies on many factors such as the coaching plan, unique struggles, emotional state, and belief or buy-in of the process.

There’s typically a critical time at the start of coaching in the first 90 days, when you will start to see positive changes including completed work and tasks, less arguing, and increased confidence. Some students may make progress faster or slower. Most find that they really like the support and accountability and stick with their coaches long-term. Many students see progress more quickly with a more intensive program as the action plans are for a narrower time and reinforcement is more frequent.

Over time, clients increase their skills and may choose to go with a lighter coaching program as they improve.
What Are Executive Function Skills?
Executive functions skills are the mental processes that allow us to plan, focus attention, remember instructions, regulate emotions and organize multiple tasks. These skills help students balance school, sports, activities, and their social life successfully without falling behind or getting overwhelmed.
How Is Coaching Different from Therapy?
While both coaching and therapy aim to support individuals in achieving personal growth, they differ in focus and approach. Therapy typically addresses past traumas, emotional issues, and mental health concerns, whereas coaching is present-oriented and focuses on goal attainment, skill development, and performance improvement with a working action plan each session.

Coaching is a perfect partner for therapy as it offers real time skill development and strategies to navigate challenges.

What Happens if I am Not Reaching My Goals?
Open communication is key in the coaching relationship. If you're not satisfied with your coaching experience, discuss your concerns with your coach openly and collaboratively explore potential solutions. Our coaches will adjust to your needs.

If you have any questions or concerns during coaching, you can reach out to our Program Director. We are so sure of our program we will give you 2 weeks, on us, with a new coach if your student is not making progress. Our goal is your student’s success!
Do You Accept Insurance?
Unfortunately, insurance does not cover coaching expenses because they are not considered medical treatments. Coaching is often covered by HSA/Flex spending accounts. Contact your benefits provider for more information.
Can I Enroll at Anytime?
Yes! Again, everything we do is customized to you, so you can enroll when you are ready! Your first month of coaching will be a prorated charge based on your enrollment date.
Do I Have to Have a Consult to Enroll?
No, if you feel you are ready to enroll, you simply click in the plan you want and we will reach out with onboarding.

We do encourage a consult prior to enrolling to make sure you understand our program, we can understand your needs, and you can decide if it is a good fit.

My Student Said They Do Not Want Coaching, Should I Force Them?
Student buy in is key to a successful relationship and forward progress. Often students are skeptical about how a coach can help and that is normal, but it is critical they are willing to meet with their coach and engage in the program. We are happy to talk with your student to explain more about how coaching can support them and ease their fears. If a student is still not ready, it is better to wait until they are.
Will My Student Just Become Dependent on Their Coach Telling Them What to Do?
Our primary goal is to empower your student by facilitating their own thought processes, rather than providing direct advice. This approach, grounded in inquiry, powerful questioning, and extensive training, enables clients to tap into their self-knowledge, acknowledging them as experts in their own lives. The ultimate aim of each session is to collaborate with the client to create an action plan that they've devised, with coach guidance steering the conversation. Our end goal is your student managing their daily life independently.

Every student can learn, just not on the same day, or the same way. -George Evans
