What is Calm© & Connected and APCA©?
Testimonials From Parents And Professionals
Cindy, this article perfectly describes my son. If it weren’t for your Calm and Connected© class I would not have had the tools to recognize the symptoms. I’m happy to report he is now in 8th grade, has a 504, and is feeling much better about his achievements.
I worked with PTS Coaching during a difficult time in my son’s school career and quickly realized the importance of working through my own unexpressed emotions. Cindy helped me see this and gave me valuable tools to help the healing process. I am so very grateful for her time and guidance and happy to report that both my son and myself are much better because of it.
My son and I are so much more respectful to one another. We are not screaming at each other, but rather connecting and interacting in a calm manner. We, as a family have learned so much! The time management skills have changed our homework hours and created an environment of love and support, not a battlefield! Thank you Cindy!
Cindy Goldrich is a phenomenal instructor and made it simple to stay engaged. As a result, I earned an APCA license to teach Calm and Connected: Parenting Children and Teens with Executive.
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
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 Limon, Special Education Lead
I attended your conference at WSBOCES in January…loved it…and have used many of your strategies (and ways of thinking) in my classroom.
Pamela, 1st Grade Teacher
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)
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 parent’s end to help defray emotional reaction to the 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.
I knew I needed better communication skills 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 will 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…Thank you, Cindy.
Amal A. (Mother and ADHD Parent Coach Academy Graduate)
If it hadn’t been for your course and your outreach to parents I wouldn’t have been able to advocate for my son. Now he can receive the support he needs to reach his potential. Thank YOU!
I took the ADHD Parent Coach Academy from Singapore and I have found the information very helpful and up to date. Cindy has been really sincere and supportive from the moment I contacted her. I have started to do her webinars in both Japanese and English and my participants have given me feedback on how the webinars gave them a new light on their situations and so informative. The administration side is very smooth as well and is amazingly on top of things! I definitely recommend PTS Coaching to anyone looking to find a coach and to train to become a coach.
Ryoko Sado, ADHD/EF Coach, Counselor, Educational Coach
I feel so much less stress, as a parent. I knew I probably needed to be more consistent, set limits, and create structure, but now I have the tools and confidence to really make the changes for me and for my child.
Thank you for an incredibly useful training session. It was SO helpful to be able to do this via the web. I would not have been able to do it otherwise. I got a lot out of the course and I plan to go deeply into your materials in the months to come to keep teaching and reminding myself of everything you presented.
My husband and I want to express our most sincere thank you for allowing us to participate in your webinar! As was expected, it was TERRIFIC!
Cindy has an incredible depth of knowledge. The passion for what she does shines through. Her Calm & Connected class completely changed my relationship with my son! The strategies I received have been invaluable. Being a parent of a neurodiverse child is the hardest job in the world, so to receive help from someone who truly understands has been life-changing.
Thank you for helping me to appreciate my family. I left work early to see the kids. I walked in the door (washed my hands, changed, and mouth washed) and just hugged them both. Both girls said, “You’re home already?!” and added that they missed me. The dynamic at our house has changed completely. Bonus: they both told me, after the hugging and laughing, that they finished their work. I’m definitely happy about that, but thrilled to know I got to tell them “I love you” with a big smile before they could give me that information.
You have changed my life. I’m forever grateful. Stay safe! Sincerely, Erin
“I loved your professional development class!! I immediately started re-reading your handouts and feel very inspired. I can’t wait to implement many strategies, especially showing how the neurons connect and what is happening inside their brains. I also love the two homework handouts.”
The 1st meeting I had with Cindy I just vented and she listened. She was compassionate and knowledgeable and helped me realize I could help my son. After Cindy visited my son’s school and spoke with his teacher I knew she was an awesome asset to my son’s education. The strategies she suggested to his teacher worked within a week and he is on a path to success.
“Your presentation provided easy-to-implement practical suggestions for empowering those who work with children with ADHD, and other related challenges, as well as recognizing and understanding their own as well as the student’s strengths. We admire how you responded so well to the questions and gave great advice, ideas and comfort with your responses.”

Gwynn A. (Mother and APCA Parent Coach Academy Graduate)
I have taken Cindy’s 6-week parenting course and attended her parent support group. They both are terrific and blend just the right amount of education, insight, support, and sharing. Cindy is a highly competent and expert coach who is able to make what sometimes seems like the impossible, possible, and even achievable. She is also a warm and caring coach who draws on her wealth and breadth of experience to help parents better understand and effectively parent their children.
I highly recommend working with Cindy. She brings, calm, clarity, and wisdom to your family when you need it most. She understands the challenges you encounter on a daily basis and helps you over the hurdles. Cindy provides her wisest insights and still respects your position and supports you unwaveringly.
Most importantly, she helps you see your child in a new light so that you can be your child’s biggest advocate. I am forever grateful for all that Cindy has taught me and my family.

Thank you so much for the info in the webinar. I think it is really going to help me and my son navigate and survive homework time. Thank you!
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!

I must say, taking this course is one of the best decisions I have made to increase my knowledge and improve my ability to provide holistic support to families. Thanks!
Liliana Diaz, CPA, ADHD & Executive Function Parent Coach
Cindy’s Parent Coach training program is excellent. She is relatable and knowledgeable about ADHD and parenting. Cindy’s workshops helped me launch my coaching business with workshops that provide valuable and easy to administer tools for both acquiring clients and working with clients. I am also taking advantage of Cindy’s ongoing education to coaches to help me grow my practice and increase my knowledge. I highly recommend this program for coaches just starting out or coaches wanting to expand their practices!
