Abstract/Description: The current case study was designed to further the utility of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) coaching for college students. Seven college or graduate students underwent eight weeks of an ADHD coaching intervention, and resulting qualitative data was analyzed by the researcher. Results showed that all participants who completed the coaching process felt ADHD coaching was just as or more beneficial than traditional psychotherapy or medication. Researchers present several sources of data to give evidence toward their conclusions including qualitative assessment techniques and participant questionnaires. Participant characteristics, suggestions for coaching, and limitations of the current study are also discussed. The number of college students with ADHD continues to grow. However, due to a number of challenges they have never faced prior in their academic career, many of these students are unable to complete a post-secondary or graduate degree. Most current psychosocial interventions are not helping college students with ADHD succeed at a desirable rate. ADHD coaching, a fairly novel technique, continues to show promise but further research is needed.
