It is estimated that between 65% and 89% of all individuals with ADHD will have one or more additional mental health disorders, and more than 45% of adults with ADHD will have two or more comorbid mental health disorders. 11. Common comorbidities in children include oppositional defiant disorder and conduct disorder, whereas it is common for adults to experience depression and anxiety. The new ICD–10–CM diagnostic codes will be required by mental health providers beginning in October 2015. However, these codes are being integrated into the DSM–5.

These studies show generally favorable results, with improvements in a variety of areas. Kubik (2010) reported positive results with a six-session group-coaching intervention for 45 adults (ages 40–59) that focused on education, anxiety, homework, inter­ personal interactions, planning, organization, and assertiveness. Zwart and Kallemeyn (2001) used peers to do group coaching of college students with ADHD, learning disabilities, or the two combined. Gains were found on self-efficacy, motivation, time management, anxiety, and test-taking strategies after two to 10 sessions.

Most coaching programs target the core impairments of ADHD such as planning, time management, goal setting, organization, and problem solving. Most ADHD coaching programs acknowledge the biological underpinnings of the disorder in addressing the core symptoms of ADHD (inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity); however, the programs address the academic, vocational, emotional, and interpersonal life difficulties that are a result of these symptoms. Coaching programs for children are more likely to focus on working with the parents to better understand, cope with, and modify the behaviors of their children.
