Re: ADD Coach for Adult
The best of the best is right here--Linda Lawton. I am a PhD with
a similar job to what you describe, and I needed to get my act
together desperately. Linda worked with me from an entirely
non-judgemental place (essential for my success) and I made real
change. Her office is in Albany, and she is the most flexible and
understanding coach I could hope for. Linda's email is

Re: Educational Therapist or ''coach'' for middle schooler
My son has been seeing Ms. Linda Lawton on San Pablo Ave.
in Albany for some time. She does great work with my son,
who is also 15. She is especially well-equipped to handle
kids/adults with ADD/ADHD. I have also seen a number of
recommendations for her on BPN. Her email address is:
easy4you at sbcglobal.net. Good Luck,
Last Spring my teenage daughter was assessed for learning
issues by Linda Lawton, E.T. I was very impressed.
Linda was warm, insightful, kind and respectful. I found
her final report most helpful and my daughter's high
school counselor also praised it for its clarity and
insight. As a classroom teacher I have read many reports
over the years written by learning specialists, and
Linda's was exceptional for its clear delineation of the
test results and what my daughter's learning challenges
were. Linda knows a lot about ADD (it's her area of
expertise) and how it effects the school/life experience
of her clients. She helps with planning and managing the
many areas that ADD can affect, beyond the classroom.
She has offices on Solano Ave. in Berkeley and in

Re: Educational Therapist or "coach" for ADD Teen (May 2003)
Hi. When I read your message the first person I thought of
was Linda Lawton, my daughter's teacher. She is an ADD coach
and, more significantly, the parent of an ADD Berkeley High
grad, which has given her LOTS of experience with adolescent
ADD. She has also been training at UC Berkeley Extension's
Educational Therapy program (a great ET program with a clinic
and nationally recognized instructors). As an ADD coach she
helps with time management, project completion, self-esteem,
academic deficits, study skills, decision making, focus and
concentration, self-talk, household organization, goals and
priorities... and on and on and on! From personal experience
I can also say she is great with the kids in her class
(although this year she's teaching a 2/3 class, all of her
prior experience is with middle school kids or older.). She
meets each of them where they are, and brings them forward.
Her style varies from child to child, so that she can bring
out the best in each one.
You can contact her at easy4you AT sbcglobal.net. Good luck.
I am an Ed Therapy Intern at UC Extension and I do
ADD coaching for adolescents and adults. My 20+ year
teaching background is middle school . I'm available
for coaching and I also know about navigating these
waters, parent-to-parent, because I have an ADD child
myself. Good luck and contact me if you want.
