Our mission is to help people find the best version of themselves, and become it.

Our Story

We get it. We understand the challenges neurodiversity presents because – just like you – we live with those same challenges every single day.

ADDvocacy was founded in 2012 by Keith Gelhorn, CEO (Chief Empowerment Officer) as an ADHD coaching and training business. After being diagnosed with ADHD and anxiety at the age of 34, Keith was put on anti-anxiety and ADHD medication but quickly realized that while pills did help him focus to a point, it did little to change the years of accumulated bad habits.

ADDvocacy was born out of a necessity. We were unable to find proactive strategies and support for our own challenges, and found that too many youth and adults faced the same problem as well.

We've built our expertise and a team of coaches who have been through the same challenges you have, and found our purpose in helping others live their best lives.ur expertise and a team of coaches who have been through the same challenges you have, and found our purpose in helping others live their best lives.ur expertise and a team of coaches who have been through the same challenges you have, and found our purpose in helping others live their best lives.We've built our expertise and a team of coaches who have been through the same challenges you have, and found our purpose in helping others live their best lives.

What is Executive Functioning?

Executive functions are the cognitive processes that give us the skills we need to plan, prioritize and execute complex tasks.

Most people begin developing their executive functions around two years old. Executive function development tends to finish around age 30. However, people with ADHD and co-occurring conditions are often 30 to 40 percent behind their peers in developing executive function skills, which can pose challenges at school, in the workplace and day-to-day life.

Strengthen your skills to get ahead.

According to Russel Barkley, a world-renowned clinical scientist and educator, our executive function abilities are judged by the strength of these seven skills

Self-Awareness

Self-Restraint or Inhibition

Emotional Self-Regulation

Verbal Working Memory

Non-Verbal Working Memory

Self-Motivation

Planning and Problem Solving
