So grateful we found Judy to work with our son the summer between high school & college. He’s so excited for all that lies ahead, and he’s worked his butt off for every opportunity. Her coaching reassures us all that he’s doing everything he can to be prepared, focused and that he’s ready for each new step as he attends school out of state–in a totally different part of the country. She has provided expertise, resources, perspective, and taken the anxiety out of our interactions so we can stay positive, and focus on what’s most important to communicate and understand. Thank you Judy!
Each session Judy intensely listens to the issues I’m dealing with and asks deeply probing questions. Together we work on options and ways forward. I would have expected her to provide solutions “do this” or “try that”… I expected her to have a more “canned” approach. Instead, I can clearly see I’m getting a customized plan that we’re building together. Each time I leave her office I have multiple “experiments” to try. Judy thinks in a way that is absolutely unique and is able to drive to a question behind the question that I might never have seen without her help. At times, I feel like it’s almost cheating to have her help sort out the “story behind the story”. In addition to her deep intuitive skills, she zeros in on what’s working and helps develop creative means to optimize them… it’s refreshing. Having ADD can be a constant struggle… there’s so much daily frustration. With Judy, she sees the positive — yet realistic — side of things, and helps one focus on those. Finally, I cannot overstate the care and respect that practically oozes from her. I don’t feel talked down to, or patronized in any way. She treats me like an adult… something that other ADD coaches should learn. – Mick D. Small Business Owner
Judy is a wonderful, compassionate, diligent leader who easily connected with our son and, from day one, spoke his language. When a child who has ADHD learns differently, it’s likely they have had educators trying to fit them into learning boxes that are not effective. It’s not that they can’t learn, they just learn differently and they need creativity and compassion to develop the self awareness and skills that empower them to learn. Our son’s morale and confidence had started to become effected and Judy quickly interrupted this negative thought process through uses research and science to explain how his brain son’s works differently. She helped him learn what he can do to be successful. No shame, despair, or blame; rather, Judy uses her skills to empower, enrich, and help our son move forward. She knows the school system and curriculum, as a former school teacher, and she helps us navigate and advocate out our son’s school efficiently and effectively. She has helped our son recognize his own authentic talents and abilities, and she has restored accountability with him and helped us understand, as his parents, the support role we need to play to enable his success. I highly recommend Judy. She is amazing!
After many years of frustrating engagement with public and private school systems, Judy has made a tremendous impact on our son’s outlook, motivation, self-confidence, communication and education. He has worked with several therapists in various disciplines over the years and no one has been able to make the progress Judy has made. She very genuinely cares for her students and strives to make them comfortable to facilitate building their communication skills and self-confidence. She is very experienced and knowledgeable with students with special needs and learning differences. She is extremely patient and asks many questions to keep the student engaged and interacting. She uniquely builds on their strengths whether it be subject matter, vocabulary or communication style. She works tirelessly to find new strategies to accomplish specific goals. As a parent, she provides excellent and almost immediate feedback after each session. No questions are left unanswered. Unlike many therapists/providers in the past, our son always looks forward to his sessions with Judy. We are now looking forward to his graduation from high school next year and accomplishing his future goals. Judy receives our highest recommendation!
ADHD Coach Connect was what I needed for my college bound son. He attended his first year of college with great struggles. Struggles to the point of deciding whether to go back again. After deciding on his own that he wanted to give it another try we got hooked up with Judy at ADHD coach Connect. She worked with my son. She gave him things to think about and things to work on. I feel he went back to college in the fall with a little more confidence and more tools to help him be successful. Judy continues to text him once in a while to keep in contact. This is what he needed at this time as he makes career decisions. M.A.C. school guidance counselor
As a mom of a high school senior who just recently realized that my son was dealing with attention challenges, I found Judy while researching options in our area. I’m so glad I did! From the first phone conversation, Judy was deeply interested in my son…what makes him tick, what difficulties he has experienced, what interests him, etc. It was encouraging to hear that my son was not alone! And Judy really won me over when she validated me as a mom. You always question if you’ve done enough or done the right things. Judy knew just what to say while offering the opportunity to plot a new course. He has been meeting regularly with Judy this school year and I can see the positive changes. He seems much less stressed at home. He has maintained his grades and has only been late on one homework assignment. He really enjoys his meeting times with Judy and he has learned skills that enable him to identify when his mind is getting off track as well as strategies for staying “on track.” He has told me that he is grateful that we connected with Judy. So am I! Judy is a high-energy positive force that knows how to connect with kids this age and give them skills that will serve them well for the rest of their lives. Denise
Working with Judy for the past 8 years and our students who have ADHD has changed the way I teach in my own classroom. Judy makes sure that each student succeeds while creating different learning strategies that are tailored to that child. She has also provided intervention strategies for our entire building for teachers to use within their classroom for any student that is struggling (academic or behavior), and has proven to be a tremendous success.

Judy MacNamee was a phenomenal intervention specialist for students with special needs in the classroom. She was able to do her job so well because she took the time to uncover the students unique strengths and weaknesses to create a plan for success! T.H; School Psychologist
