Train to Become a Professional ADHD / Executive Function Parent Coach

Now Approved Toward ICF Certification! [click to learn more]

When a child has ADHD, Executive Function challenges, and behavioral challenges, the whole family struggles. However, when parents more deeply understand the impact these challenges have on learning, motivation, behavior, and the entire family system, they can begin to reduce anxiety, depression, and defiance.

Regardless of the support the child receives, parents need their own support to help them understand and mitigate the social and emotional impact on the child and the whole family system.

Join the ADHD Parent Coach Academy, and train to support parents who are struggling with raising a child with ADHD and other challenges.  

This training will prepare you to teach parents the tools, strategies, and insights needed to help their child and their entire family thrive!

The ADHD Parent Coach Academy training is open to individuals committed to helping families impacted by ADHD/EF challenges thrive!  Participants include Mental Health Professionals, Professional Coaches, Educators, Nurse Practitioners, School Psychologists, Learning Specialists, Occupational Therapists, Speech-Language Pathologists, and Parents and Caregivers who are ready to lead others through this unique journey.

For those interested in pursuing their  International Coaching Federation (ICF) Coaching Certification, you may combine this training with the Certified Professional Coach program through the Center for Coaching Certification designed to specifically help you develop the ICF's Core Competencies of a coach.  This training provides a model, process, and the tools for you to learn the essentials of coaching.

PTS Coaching - ADHD Parent Coach Academy

This professional ADHD coach training is based on my decade's work supporting parents and incorporating the most valuable, researched-based information about ADHD, Executive Function, behavioral challenges, and learning challenges.

Parenting is not easy, especially when a child has attentional, behavioral, or learning challenges.  I believe that parents parent out of love, intuition, and logic.  However, when parents do not have a complete understanding of how ADHD and other challenges impact their unique child, they risk unintentionally creating stressors and conflict in their very caring attempts to motivate and influence their child's behavior and performance.

As one of the pioneers in the field of ADHD /EF Parent Coaching, I have been supporting parents through the most perplexing and stressful challenges they have ever faced – helping the children, whom they love so dearly, learn to become their best selves.


Along the way, I have seen parents go through tremendous personal growth, and I have seen marriages go from contentious to supportive.  Parents share with me their stories of success, large and small.  They report less arguing and ignoring rules, deeper, more meaningful communication, joyful time spent together, and improved grades and school reports.


The Calm and Connected: Parenting Children with ADHD/Executive Function Challenges© parent workshop series is recognized by professionals nationwide to help parents understand how ADHD/Executive Function skills development impacts children's learning, motivation, and behavior.


We now have Parent Coaches offering the Calm and Connected© Workshop and coaching parents one-on-one in the US, Canada, Kuwait, Dubai, China, Saudi Arabia, and Sweden. In addition to English, the workshop is offered in Spanish and Chinese.  More and more, parents worldwide recognize that ADHD/EF Parent Coaching (one-on-one or in a group workshop) is a valuable way to help them learn to best support their children.

Cindy, I really appreciated the opportunity to attend this session. As I mentioned to you via a separate email conversation I learned more about myself as a result of taking this course and was able to identify myself as an individual that also has ADHD. It was very liberating, and am working on developing additional supports for myself that would help hold me accountable and become more successful both in my career and in my personal life. I thank you for opening the realm of opportunity for me.
- Salvador L. (ADHD Parent Coach Academy Graduate)

What a great curriculum.  Parents had positive feedback with their kids already!! I really like how it flowed. So glad I can offer support and education to parents. Thank you for putting this together.
- Roberta H. (ADHD Parent Coach Academy Graduate)

I really enjoyed this training! I learned so much from you and have been reflecting on everything I have learned from the moment the course began. You are an excellent teacher and obviously a gifted parent coach. I have derived so many benefits from this training including a stronger ability to stay calm, listen to others, appreciate my strengths as a coach as well as a clinician, and gain a clearer understanding of the components that are required for effective parenting.
- Lauren A. (ADHD Parent Coach Academy Graduate)

You've developed a really brilliant program here. I wish I had it when my son was first diagnosed 10 years ago!
- Gwynn A. (Mother and ADHD Parent Coach Academy Graduate)

I have just completed your ADHD Parent Coach training, and I wanted to say I have never been more motivated to help a community of parents/educators who are lost and not educated enough like myself (before) to know the difficulties of raising and teaching students with ADHD. You opened my eyes to so much!
- Brittney W. (Educator and ADHD Parent Coach Academy Graduate)

Cindy is a brilliant teacher and coach. I recently completed her PTS Coaching and feel extremely knowledgeable and confident to present this very informative and user-friendly program in my community. Cindy's constant support and feedback allow me to provide parents with concrete strategies, tools, and knowledge that can change chaos into calm. She is "real and realistic," I am so incredibly grateful to her."
– ADHD Parent Coach Academy Graduate

I found this training to be extremely comprehensive and well laid out. I found the information extremely valuable, and I liked the flow of how each piece built on each other. This training provides a very comprehensive overview of the child with ADHD and why it should be imperative for every parent to take this course. It is evident that you have put an enormous amount of time and energy, and love into this course. I love the idea of being able to have this sort of template already created and deliverable vs. having to try to start from scratch. For that, I am especially grateful for the course.
- ADHD Parent Coach Academy Graduate

This training course and Calm and Connected© material is so fantastic; it's meaty with descriptions of most importantly what it's like for kids with ADHD, with concepts like disability thinking on the parents end to help defray emotional reaction to child's behaviors, solid and sensible communication techniques that can work in ANY relationship. I'm sure you've heard over and over from coaching trainees that they wished they had Calm and Connected© for their own family issues. I know that's how I feel. And though my son is in a good place and feeling fulfilled yet still learning, I have really kept this curriculum in mind when the much less occasional friction rears up. So thank you! Your delivery is therapeutic, positive, and easy to maintain full attention for 2 hours at a clip. Honest, and clear, and so willing to clear up any confusion in a calm manner.
- Heidi P. (Mother and ADHD Parent Coach Academy Graduate)

I knew I needed better communication skills to be able to cope with the new phase of our relationship. ...I think it was one of the smartest things I ever did in my life. I feel it is going to bring me closer to my son and understand what he was trying to tell me, for a very simple reason, I now know how to communicate with a calm and collaborative problem-solving attitude instead of being a judgmental short-tempered parent. I love my son dearly. If this will make me help him and not enable him, I will do it again and again and again. For me, that was the light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you, Cindy.
- Amal A. (Mother and ADHD Parent Coach Academy Graduate)

Facts About Parenting & ADHD/Executive Function Challenges:

  • Poor parenting cannot and does not cause ADHD or other learning challenges.
  • There are inherent neurobiological differences that make parenting some children much more complex.
  • When parents do not have a personalized and complete understanding of how ADHD and other challenges are impacting their unique child, they risk unintentionally creating stressors and conflict in their very caring attempts to motivate and influence their child’s behavior and performance.
  • Parent coaching is one of the most important interventions for helping children with ADHD, Executive Function challenges and learning challenges thrive.
