  • We focus on the complete lifespan and stage of a person with ADHD, not just the childhood or adult years

  • We use webinar interactive technology that let’s you see, not just hear your instructors and other students. but see and talk with them in what we call our global classroom. Students from around the world can connect, see and talk to one another virtually.

  • We take a holistic approach to ADHD Coaching, focusing on coaching the whole person, not just their ADHD. We include the impact of culture, family dynamics, environmental and learning differences on our clients and the ADHD coaching process

  • We teach about the business of ADHD Coaching in addition to the practice of ADHD Coaching — because you need to create a solid business so you can continue to serve your clients for many years to come.


But the learning doesn’t stop there, we're taking it much, much further.

A Note from Laurie Dupar, Co-founder of IACTCenter:

Laurie Dupar

I can’t tell you how excited I am that you’re considering becoming a member of the IACTCenter!

I remember what it was like to be in your shoes, to know coaching was what I wanted to do and eager to get started right away! I want to welcome you into our community.

If you are like me, you never planned to become an ADHD coach, but once I found out about this amazing profession, becoming an ADHD Coach was the best decision I’ve ever made.

Which is why I am so excited to have created the International ADHD Coach Training Center.

There’s so much that makes the IACTCenter different than other coaching programs, but the main thing that sets us apart is our core mission. We want to provide a premiere global ADHD Coaching training program so that everyone who wants to can work with an ADHD Coach…and oh yeah, we also want our students to have a little bit of fun along the way.

Just so you know, our faculty isn’t here to prove how capable we are — our results speak for themselves. We’re here to show how capable you are, by teaching you the skills and sharing with you the tools you need to become an excellent ADHD coach and build your ADHD Coaching business.

If you’re still on the fence about whether or not the IACTCenter is right for you, let’s hop on the phone and talk about it!

I know what a big decision this is for you, and I’m here to answer any questions you have and happy to give you all the details you could possibly want on the program.

And in case you’re worrying…this call isn’t designed to pressure you to sign up.

That’s not my style, plus I don’t want anyone in the class who isn’t 100% all-in!

It’s just an opportunity for you to get all the facts so you can make a confident, informed decision that’s right for you.

Part of the coaching process is learning to know yourself, understand what you need, and map out the steps to achieve your goals. I want to help you map out those steps…and see for yourself how the IACTCenter can be part of your journey.

I look forward to talking with you soon.
