Neurodiversity-Inclusive Coach Training

Human beings are more adaptable and therefore more diverse than most of us imagine.

Neurodiversity-Inclusive Coach Training enables coaches to work with the widest range of people possible. Developed by two coaches with multiple neurodivergences after collectively coaching hundreds of clients with single or multiple neurodivergences as well as neurotypical clients, coach training from the Neurodiversity Coaching Academy truly addresses the needs of the full spectrum of humanity.

Learn how to coach clients who identify as neurodivergent, clients with unrecognized unique ways of experiencing or processing the world, and clients in relationships with neurodivergent individuals using a single coaching model.

ADHD coaching, Autism coaching, Gifted coaching, and other coaching specialties designed to support a specific neurotype typically rely on data and experience about people with specific diagnoses or identifications. Neurodiversity-Inclusive coaching goes way beyond that.

Neurodiversity-Inclusive coaching is grounded in the biological mechanisms of individual brain development, trauma-informed approaches to creating psychological safety, and nuanced use of coaching principles. After mastering Neurodiversity-Inclusive coaching, you will be able to coach anyone of any neurotype without need for diagnostic criteria. You will also be able to coach clients who are multiply neurodivergent.

This training is primarily intended for coaches who have already achieved their ICF ACC credential or equivalent levels of experience, though all coaches are welcome.

Neuroscience of Neurodivergence for Coaches

Different human beings process information in different ways–that’s the basis of the neurodiversity lens. Sometimes, these differences challenge our ability to understand, empathize with, and communicate effectively with one another.

Neuroscience offers a brain-based way of examining and identifying these differences. 

Using neuroscience to inform our coaching practice requires us to examine what neuroscience tells us, what neuroscience can’t tell us, and how to use this knowledge in a coaching relationship.

By the end of this session, you will be able to:

  1. Distinguish between what neuroscience can and cannot tell us
  2. Use neuroscience to inform your coaching practice in two ways
  3. Recognize when using neuroscience would do more harm than good
