Click here to support Learning Edge 2017 Give the Gift of Coaching to At Risk Students by Edge Foundation | ADHD in the Classroom | Scoop.it
Children in low income families who may have been the victims of physical and emotional abuse, addiction and violence often have learning and attention challenges which puts them at risk for falling behind, failing and dropping out of school, particularly those who have been diagnosed with ADHD. While they are all brilliant in their own special ways, these students may lack the ability to plan, prioritize, focus, and follow through. The Edge Foundation, through its cadre of specially trained Edge Coaches, helps students realize their potential and pursue their passion. Edge Coaching provides the tools that a young person needs to develop resilience, perseverance, and grit. Our proven techniques have helped hundreds of students overcome their learning challenges and succeed in school and in life. We need your help to extend Edge coaching to as many students as possible whose families may not be able to afford coaching services. Each Learning Edge student will receive a $2,500 grant for Edge Coaching. Coaches work one-on- one with the student to help them develop the skills they need to succeed in school. Some of our most successful entrepreneurs, political leaders, athletes and artists have ADHD. Your donation will help give these students the chance to be one too!

Edge Foundation's curator insight, January 12, 2016 9:33 AM

What is coaching for ADHD all about? How does it work? Coaching young adults with executive-function challenges is about allowing the brain and the body’s nervous system to work together to for best results. There are several ways of looking at coaching. One is coaching for compliance and the other is coaching for growth. Coaching for compliance is what happens when overt expectations are established so that someone must comply. Coaching for compliance is also about following rules and doing what is expected in a given situation. When we mention compliance or growth, we are actually thinking about how the autonomic nervous system is being activated.  Continue reading at https://edgefoundation.org/blog/2015/12/17/what-is-coaching-all-about/

Rachael Grant's curator insight, March 11, 2014 2:04 PM

I always thought that there were more people with learning disabilities! This list of ten quick facts about LDs says that there is only ten percent of people with learning difficulties are in enrolled in a four year college within two years of leaving high school. This was very surprising to me! This opened my eyes to how alone these students must feel. It would be difficult enough to have a different learning style than most of your peers or your teacher, but to have a diagnosed disability would be very frustrating.
