Multimodal care, including Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) coaching, is considered optimal in ADHD treatment. Still, little research has explored the topic of interprofessional communication and collaboration for this population. Following COREQ guidelines, this report of focus group research identifies attitudes and experiences of ADHD coaches regarding communication and collaboration with other professionals in support of their clients. Key themes in the data suggest a perception that collaboration is important but that there are barriers to overcome. Interprofessional learning opportunities, training in collaborative approaches, and research on varied professionals’ perspectives related to collaboration might all enhance optimal support for individuals with ADHD.
