Bill Benninger and Alan Graham created ADDvisor.com in 2000 as a way to offer evidence based information and services the the ADHD community. They met in a coach training program (Mentorcoach), and quickly became aware of each other's interest and commitment to helping child, adolescents, adults and their families to navigate the challenges of ADHD. Their partnership grew and, in 2006, they were the first psychologists in the United States to be certified to administer Cogmed Working Memory Training. In 2016, Alan and Bill authored an article that appears in The Journal of Applied Neuropsychology: Child titled, "Parental Perceptions of the Efficacy of Cogmed Working Memory Training."
