ADHD is Different for Girls
with Linda Roggli, PCC
ADHD can look very different in girls and women than it does in boys and men. That different appearance of symptoms, coupled with gender stereotypes, means girls with ADHD often fall through the cracks and struggle without a diagnosis for much longer. In this episode of the Parenting ADHD Podcast, I talk with ADHD Coach and adult with ADHD, Linda Roggli, PCC about the symptoms to watch for in girls, the role estrogen plays in ADHD symptom severity, and the ways that ADHD is just plain different for girls.
