Girls with "hyperactive" ADHD
I’m just wondering what people’s experiences are having girls with ADHD.
Personally, my daughters have classic “ADHD” with emphasis on the “H”, but all the articles about “Girls With ADHD” discuss how usually it manifests differently, how they are less hyperactive and more spacy. Googling “girls with adhd” brings up tons of articles about girls going unnoticed and undiagnosed due to the “difference”.
As this has not been the case for me, I find it hard to find useful information relevant to my daughters.
Does anyone else have girls who are “obviously” ADHD in the hyperactive way that is apparently thought to apply to boys? Are there ANY articles or resources out there that talk about these girls?
