ADHD In Women & Girls Resources

ADHD in women and girls tends to go undiagnosed more often than in males. This is due to different symptoms, different subtypes, and because women tend to internalize rather than externalize. If you’re just discovering you have ADHD as a woman or young woman, we have resources to help. For additional resources for ADHD in women and girls you may find useful, sign up for our monthly “Positive Steps” newsletter.
