Successful ADHD coaches use “Miniature Miracle” technology to create better outcomes for students
Findings Reveal Successful coaches provide students with firm and caring control
In order to help students succeed academically and in life, successful coaches must be able to listen to students and communicate positive messages about what they are doing right. It is also important for them to be able to control the team, help instill confidence and learn from their mistakes.
Proactive coaches show concern, and respond with encouragement. Students who are proactive and responsive are able to better function in school and gain confidence and self-esteem.
Proactive coaches promote positive behavior while providing players with support. They typically select a balanced approach with rules and encouraging messages.
Do people with ADHD have the same success as adults who had ADHD? In so many studies we have found that adults who had ADHD as children are much more successful and succeed in life than adults who do not have ADHD. We refer to adults with ADHD as secondary hyperactive-impulsive disorder, and most of our ADHD treatment involves working with our brain and to manage the brain and offer treatment for the parents and the student to see a successful change.
We’ve found that the majority of our clientele have been diagnosed with ADHD, so our products definitely is aimed at helping our clients. All of our studies show that ADHD is linked to a greater probability for success in school, career and life after school. What does that mean to a student with ADHD? Well, our sport products can help them to better understand what they’re learning and help them better process their learning. Our sports software, which gives kids an electronic solution to learning, can help kids to understand what’s being taught, help them process information and more effectively identify other relevant ideas to discuss in a school setting. For example, simply viewing an open Socratic class can help kids be more creative and think critically. This is true not only for the student with ADHD but for the students that have received the diagnosis.
There are a couple of successful programs that offer some of these types of digital tools. However, they are mostly used by students and adults that don’t have ADHD. I think that if more schools had the equipment and software that help kids with ADHD there would be a higher success rate in our schools and also in their careers. These parents and students not only have learned in public schools but they are always searching for what is the best educational and career solution for their child. They truly look for the best, the best that their child will be able to master as well as the best technology and product.
Our software is unique in that it gives a glimpse into what’s going on in the classroom. It not only features video interviews for each lesson to go along with the lessons, but it also displays timelines. The user can create a personalized timeline that shows how their child studied throughout the week, week to week and it gives them an opportunity to show the person what their child is learning and the challenges he/she may have had. The end result is a way for the student to better understand what he is getting and is going through in school. The child or student can keep a visual diary within the timeline, allowing the student to show everything that’s been going on in school. This can help keep his interest in school, increase learning and assist in the monitoring of the student to see if they’re struggling or just taking too long with something.
Another feature of our sports software is the brand new school management system. I believe it is a game changer because it allows teachers and administrators to view homework assignments, test results, grades, pictures of students doing good things and building blocks for not only students with ADHD but anyone learning different skills to be able to handle the different tasks that they face each week in school.
