Episode Summary

This show intends to inspire, encourage and challenge participants toward a greater understanding of neurodiversity, defined as “the range of differences in individual brain function and behavioral traits, regarded as part of normal variation in the human population.” Broaden your perspective toward the great variety of human emotional, cognitive, and behavioral expression and the benefits of valuing all each person can contribute. We will contrast three views of brain-based conditions: the medical model, normalized and well-managed. Concerns and implications for people who suffer with brain-based impairments will be recognized. We’ll explore the coaching sub-culture of ADHD coaching which embraces neurodiversity while meeting the needs of clients who are challenged by stigma and ignorance. ADHD coaches accompany each client on a very individual journey to from disability to wholeness. We can look at concrete actions coach training programs can take to meet the needs of a neurodiverse student population – and train coaches to meet the needs of neurodiverse clients.
