Her first book, Empowering Youth With ADHD: Your Guide to Coaching Adolescents and Young Adults for Coaches, Parents, and Professionals provides coaches, parents and professionals with a powerful new guide to improving the lives of youth with ADHD through coaching. “This is a ‘whole child’ approach,” says Sleeper-Triplett. “Whether it’s a coach, a parent, or a professional, there is a growing desire for people to learn the techniques that work. Coaching is the missing piece of the ADHD intervention enigma.”
