ADHD in Girls
Should I have my daughter tested?
I am a mom with ADD (diagnosed at age 40). I have a husband and son both diagnosed with ADHD. My 11 y.o. daughter is very bright and does fairly well in school, has never been a behavior problem in school, but she is forgetful, disorganized, talks incessantly, and moves all the time. She is hypersensitive to any correction and always has been (its not just hormones), is impulsive, interrupts people a lot. Even though she’s doing well in school, should we have her tested? How urgent or important is it?
