What We Do

We are a different kind of company! We understand that you, as the parent, are the expert on your child. This is not about the therapist “fixing” your child.  Our focus is family centered. We work with the entire family to address everyone’s challenges and needs, providing a concierge type service that extends to every aspect of your child’s life.

If you have a child who is struggling at school, home or in the community with staying focused and motivated, completing tasks large and small, and managing emotions and relationships, you have a child with executive functioning difficulties. These kiddos tend to fall through the cracks of most medically based or special education type services. Our goal is to proactively address your biggest concerns before they get out of control.

Combining ADHD Coaching and Occupational Therapy into a New Model

Over the years, we have found that focusing only on executive functioning skills is not best practice for children and adolescents with ADHD. Their needs are more varied, and they often have co-existing diagnoses. We use an occupational therapy lens: holistic, developmentally based with an understanding of each child’s unique sensory and motor strengths and challenges, neurodiversity affirming, with use of meaningful occupations and necessary daily tasks equally important to the overall functioning of the individual. This is what differentiates Kids Empowered 4 Life from an ADHD coach!

Our Services

ADHD/Executive Functions Coaching

“My child is smart but often can’t remember to do the assignments or turn them in!” “My child is so disorganized and always late!” Do these sound familiar in your house? We can help with one on one coaching.

Parent Coaching

Parenting is hard! ADHD is a whole family issue: it impacts the parent/child relationship, as well as relationships with siblings and friends, and it affects school satisfaction and performance.

Using an authoritarian parenting style results in the inevitable power struggle, with only one party (the parent) “winning” and the other (child) being told what to do, and often resisting or only complying in exchange for a reward. The parent feels frustration and resentment over having such a “difficult” child and the child feels sad and angry and out of control. The cycle continues, unless you are willing to try something different.

Practical Solutions for ADHD Workbook for Teens

This is a workbook for teens diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or executive functioning weaknesses, or for those who have challenges with study skills. It is divided into three sections: Executive Functioning Skills, Study Skills and Personal Development Skills. It includes self-assessment sections in each area, along with practical tips, and areas for teens to write about their own challenges and choose strategies that may work for them. This workbook speaks directly to teens in a non-judgemental way. It offers real help for many of the areas that teens with ADHD, or those that suspect they have ADHD, really need. It requires some self-direction but the strategies and tips inside will definitely help teens to improve all areas of their lives.

Kids Empowered 4 Life
I’m Abigail Wool-Biringer. I earned my Master of Arts degree in Occupational Therapy from the University of Southern California in 1997. Go Trojans! I moved to Phoenix in 2004 and have been working exclusively with the pediatric population since 2010. I work with children of all ages and diagnoses, with special interest in feeding issues, ADHD, executive skills dysfunction, and autism spectrum disorder. I believe that there is a large group of underserved kids out there that could be making gains in leaps and bounds if they are empowered with the right type and frequency of intervention.

I am married and I have two sons, two step-sons, and two dogs. In my spare time, I enjoy running, hiking, gardening, and spending time with my family.
