• Overview

    Coaching Teens & College Students with ADHD was the first ADHD coach training in the world with a focus on students, ages 13 – 30. JST launched the inaugural training in 2005 and it has been our most popular continuing education course to date. Using the research-based JST Coaching Model for Success, our graduates help students make positive life changes. Individuals and institutions in over 25 countries have completed this ADHD coach training and are using the tools in their work with students. This course is approved for 40 hours of training from ICF and 30 hours from CCE-Global.
