Edit: Off-topic, not ADHD related. Carry on.

Coaching does almost zilch to address ADHD needs. There’s some initial benefits, but it’s the same sort of benefit anyone would get from coaching. Coaching does not and cannot address anything specific to ADHD symptoms that manifest themselves in the moment.

Coaching is enormously useful.

It will not fix an organic brain issue, of course, but to understand and have a feedback loop on your own behavior - is very helpful.

Maybe I didn’t clearly communicate, but I meant no additional benefit specific to addressing ADHD problems of biological origin.

It does to some extent, because once you have some improvements from stimulants, newly found ability to concentrate and follow through will allow you to create new feedback loops/circuits/patterns in your brain that didn't exist before, very much a biological change.
