Girls Will Be Girls

Recent findings, suggest the symptoms of ADHD in girls can differ drastically from those of boys and may go overlooked.

For example, a boy with ADHD may have trouble sitting still in his classroom, constantly shifting in his seat. A girl, on the other hand, may be out of her seat but has taken on the role of classroom helper, wandering around to different desks. A teacher would consider the boy’s actions to be hyperactive, whereas the girl’s actions would be considered helpful. Here are some signs that your daughter may have ADHD:

  • Her performance on tests does not match how long she spends studying.
  • She struggles with friendships because she does not read social cues.
  • She misplaces her things frequently (phone, homework, money, etc.).
  • Visit your local primary care physician for a professional opinion.
