What is very impressive about Laurie, is her unique breadth of expertise on ADHD. First, as a trained psychiatric nurse practitioner which provides her with a diverse neurobiological understanding of ADHD.
Her 20 years of experience as a certified ADHD life coach working with thousands of people struggling with ADHD. Her personal experience with ADHD as the wife, mother of four (two diagnosed with ADHD) and her own diagnosis as an adult.
Her global understanding of ADHD from training 100’s of emerging coaches from around the world at the iACTcenter. And last but not least, her fierce devotion and skill in presenting her knowledge in a way that can serve others with ADHD in an accessible and comprehensible model.
The middle school personal experience is a period of life uniquely defined. Caught between childhood and adulthood, this is the age when hormones rage, social relationships change, responsibilities increase, and ADHD is often first diagnosed.
An ADHD diagnosis can present answers for many who are struggling and a desire to understand treatment options to minimize symptoms for most. Although one of the most effective treatment options for symptom management includes ADHD medications, middle schoolers can challenge and undermine any simple medication options.
Listen in to this session as Laurie Dupar, trained Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, 20-year ADHD Life Coach and Founder of the International ADHD Coach Training Center, clarifies the specific challenges that undermine effective use of ADHD medications for this age group and leave with understanding and specific solutions when it comes to approaching ADHD medication treatment for this age group.
Laurie is on a mission to rid the world of the stigma surrounding ADHD so those that experience it can truly enjoy their AWESOMENESS!
Her youngest son failed “circle time” twice when he was diagnosed 19 years ago. Dedicated to finding a way to focus on his brilliance rather than his ADHD challenges, Laurie discovered coaching and earned her certification with the Coaches Training Institute in 2002. After experiencing first-hand, the positive changes coaching made for her son and her family, Laurie made a mid-life career switch from a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner to the profession of an ADHD Life Coach.
In 2015 Laurie founded the International ADHD Coach Training Center. Intentionally, the acronym spells out, I ACT, as the IACT Center has trained 100’s of ADHD life coaches worldwide to actively make a difference in the lives of those struggling with ADHD regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, or culture.
