In this course, coaches will gain skills to effectively coach and support neurodivergent learners of all ages. Using the research-based JST Coaching Model for success, coaches will explore the shift from life coaching to neurodiversity coaching in order to co-create lasting change for their clients of all ages. The course will unwrap the nuances of coaching adolescents, college students and adults living with ASD, ADHD, executive function challenges and co-existing conditions.
Our discussions will include:
- Understanding the Facets of Neurodiversity
- The Impact of Neurodiversity on the Coaching Process
- Cultural Humility
- Neurodiversity as an Inclusion Strategy
- Strength-Based Coaching Approach
- Coaching Strategies to Support Neurodivergent Learners.
Why is this an important topic?
Understanding and embracing neurodiversity in communities, academic settings and workplaces can improve inclusivity for all.
Learning how to foster an environment that is supportive of neurodiversity unlocks opportunities to recognize and celebrate each client’s individual strengths and talents.
Approaching the coaching process from a neurodiversity perspective deepens the partnership between coach and client and also provides a safe space for exploration and achievement.
This is an ICF Continuing Coach Education course which can be used towards the International Coaching Federation (ICF) credential renewal requirements.
