Objective: To provide an analysis of the use of between session assignments (BSA) in ADHD coaching with college students. The article provides a description of the structure and process of using BSA in an academic setting. Method: A brief survey of ADHD coaches is used to evaluate 13 coaching clients engaged in an 8-week structured program. A case study illustrates the process of using BSA with college students. Results: Overall progress in the ADHD coaching sessions was significantly correlated with coach's rating of the client's quality of BSA during treatment, the client's positive attitude to BSA, and the usefulness of BSA. Treatment gain scores were significantly related to the client's being motivated by a desire to please their parents. Conclusions: BSAs can be useful in the context of ADHD coaching with college students. (Contains 3 tables.)
