ADHD Coaching – an Untapped Market

It is estimated that about 60 percent of the children with ADHD become adults with ADHD – most children don’t outgrow it. About 8 million adults have some form of ADHD – that’s about 4 percent of the population. Diagnoses among children increase each year – the largest increase is among girls and adult women (as a group, mothers show a large surge).

Coaching children with ADHD is a huge potential market – it is estimated, on average, that every classroom of 30 students has 1 to 3 children with ADHD. Almost half of those kids are noted to have severe ADHD. Teens also suffer from high rates of ADHD – about 3 to 5 percent, or nearly 2 million teens.
