What is ADHD?

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It is a mental health disorder that can cause abnormal levels of hyperactive and impulsive behaviors.

Both adults and children can have ADHD.

 

ADHD symptoms
A wide range of behaviors are associated with ADHD. Some of the more common ones include:

 

      • Having trouble focusing or concentrating on tasks
      • Being forgetful about completing tasks
      • Being easily distracted
      • Having difficulty sitting still
      • Interrupting people while they’re talking

Executive Functioning

Executive functioning skills are usually developed in early childhood to teen years. But they keep developing into the mid-20s. When kids are younger, some may lag behind peers for a while. As they get older, though, they may have fewer challenges as teens and young adults.

 

 

Executive function is responsible for many skills, including:

 

      • Paying attention
      • Organizing, planning, and prioritizing
      • Starting and finishing the assigned tasks
      • Understanding different points of view
      • Regulating emotions
      • Self-monitoring (keeping track of what you’re doing)

Adult Coaching For ADHD Dyslexia Executive Functioning

Dyslexia is a learning disorder that makes reading a challenge. There’s no connection between dyslexia and how intelligent you are. Your brain works a little differently. It’s hard for you to make the connections between letters, words, and sounds. Reading impacts your ability to learn. This means dyslexia can affect you at work, and in social settings. And that can take a toll on your mental well-being. Most of them need a proper adult Coaching for ADHD Dyslexia Executive Functioning.

 

Adults with dyslexia are often spatially talented. They excel in professions such as:

 

      • Engineering
      • Architecture
      • Design
      • Artistic endeavors
      • Mathematics
      • Medical work

What Does Dyslexia Look Like in Adults?

Dyslexia can make it harder to:

 

      • Do math concepts
      • Managing time and meeting deadlines
      • Memorizing facts and things like phone numbers
      • Take good notes
      • Writing essays and reports

 

And you may find that:

 

      • You avoid reading and writing activities
      • You feel like the right word is on the tip of your tongue, but you can’t get at it
      • You find office work that involves repeating the same tasks is really hard to get done
      • You get anxious or use lots of fillers, like “uh and um,” when you talk
      • You know a lot about a topic, but you can’t seem to put what you know into words or writing.

How Can I Manage Dyslexia?

If you have these symptoms, there’s a lot you can do to make your life easier.

 

Get some tests.

If you feel like you have dyslexia but aren’t sure, you can get some tests to verify. Dyslexia is not a medical problem but you can ask doctors for advice on where and how to get tested.

 

You can also ask:

  • Tutoring Companies like Themba Tutors.
  • Education departments
  • Speech therapist
  • A psychologist at local universities or colleges
  • Hospitals or health clinics tied to universities

 

There is no cure for dyslexia. But with proper testing and diagnosis followed by hard work and support. Individuals diagnosed with dyslexia can be highly successful in life. An individualized and effective coaching program can be designed for you.

More about our Coaching and Tutoring?

 

Our learning specialists, academic tutors, and writing coaches provide 1:1, individualized tutoring for children, adolescents, college students and adults of all ages, levels, and personalities.  Our goal is to help students and adults feel more confident and become more effective learners and workers overall. We aim for students to maximize their learning potential from a collaborative approach working with parents, teachers, and other professionals.

 

 

We specialize in tutoring students who are struggling with learning differences – focusing, organizing, studying, test-taking reading, writing, math, languages, and other subject areas.  We are experts in ADHD/ADD, executive functioning, language processing, reading (e.g. dyslexia), writing, (e.g. dysgraphia), and math disorders (e.g. dyscalculia), autism spectrum disorders, non-verbal learning disorder, and other learning differences.  Our Learning Specialists work with homeschoolers and offer online tutoring options.

 

 

We also tutor high school and college students, and adults without learning difficulties but in need of science, math, writing, and foreign language support. Our Academic Tutors support Algebra I/II, Geometry. Trigonometry, Calculus, Statistics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Computer Programming, and many foreign languages. Our Writing Coaches support writing within English Language Arts and across the high school and college curriculum.

 

 

Each of Themba’s expert tutors has an advanced degree in working with learning differences or an academic field of expertise. All tutors have years of teaching and tutoring in private and public schools or universities. We customize curricula, starting with careful assessments, then applying developmentally appropriate methods and strategies. The student’s current academic material is an important focus, but strengthening core skills is crucial because that will last a lifetime. We coach students to learn how to organize, plan, prioritize, focus, avoid distractions, and keep track of materials and tasks.

 

 

Goals include improving memory and information retention, spending more focused time on tasks and completing them, decreasing procrastination, organizing schoolwork, managing time more effectively, and learning to think carefully before acting.  Specialists model and support the application of skills in the appropriate context. They put the student in the driver’s seat to best generalize these skills without holding the steering wheel

Our Coaching and Tutoring Approach

 

We understand that even bright, successful adults need help. Our professional tutors and coaches work with college students and professionals. This includes business, law, medicine, the arts, and other fields. We assist adults with:

 

      • Writing, reading, and proofreading.
      • Organization and planning.
      • Paper management.
      • Math support
      • Language processing
      • Reading, e.g. dyslexia
      • Writing, e.g. dysgraphia
      • Math disorders e.g. dyscalculia
      • Autism spectrum disorders
      • Non-verbal learning disorder

and other learning differences.

 

Our specialists help professionals perform better in their work environment. Putting their strengths to best use is one of the things we aim to achieve. Our specialist will also help you to work around challenges and find ways to overcome them with proper adult coaching for ADHD dyslexia.
