Join a community of professionals committed to understanding, supporting, and advocating for children with ADHD and related challenges.

Poor parenting cannot and does not cause ADHD.  It is a neurobiological difference.  However, when parents do not have a personalized and complete understanding of how ADHD is 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 and Executive Function challenges thrive.

Expand your practice by providing direct parenting support based on the impactful CalmConnected philosophy and practices.

Enrollment is open to Mental Health Professionals, ADHD Coaches, Support Service professionals and other caregivers whose role provides the opportunity to support families touched by ADHD.

  • "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. (APCA 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 APCA 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)

  • "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 to the course. "

    APCA Graduate, 2017

  • “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 the smartest thing 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)

  • “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.”
