Common Questions

Where is the coaching offered?

The coaching program is very personalized, for some people it is online, for others at home and for some outdoors, or at one of our locations. We currently offer EmpowerOne ADHD across all 48-states online. Students who live in the DC area can also drop by one of our youth meet points in Baltimore, Ellicott City, Columbia or Gaithersburg. Once you sign up, you and your coach will decide together where to meet.

When is the coaching offered?

Again, due to the personalization of the program, each student works with the coach to identify a best time. Most participants meet in afternoons or weekends during school season, or weekday evenings during school breaks. Many also make arrangements to meet with their coach during a youth program at their local community or ILIA youth group.

How Much is EmpowerOne ADHD?

The standard fee is $999 per month for 4 sessions. Sessions usually range from 50 mins to 2.5 hours. Most students receive a total of 6 hours per month. We occasionally offer discounts. Financial Aid could also be available. To find the price of a particular month click on the Registration Buttons on this page.
