The Edge Foundation is a nonprofit that provides specialized ADHD coaching for students and adults. The mission of Edge is to help all students with ADHD and executive functioning challenges maximize their potential.
Team Edge was developed by Neil Peterson, Edge's CEO and Robert Tudisco, Edge's Executive Director. Both are adults with ADHD who manage their ADHD symptoms through exercise. There is much research showing the link between exercise and brain function and specifically ADHD. The idea behind Team Edge was to develop a a community for those whose lives are touched by ADHD to raise awareness about Edge's mission, ADHD coaching, and to raise money to provide coaching for those who could not otherwise afford it. We encourage you to make a difference to support Team Edge and make a difference in the life of a student with ADHD.

ADHD students don’t have to be “at risk” students.
The Edge Foundation coaches work with students in seven major areas: scheduling, goal setting, confidence building, organizing, focusing, prioritizing and persisting at tasks. They help students assess their environments, identify needs, set goals, and offer suggestions and guidance. Coaches monitor student progress and goals through regular phone or e-mail check-ins. The protocol of regularly checking in with clients provides for more structure and accountability.
