We’re back with another research review! In this episode, we cover the findings in a paper titled “Females with ADHD: An expert consensus statement taking a lifespan approach providing guidance for the identification and treatment of attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorder in girls and women" 

Questions explored include: ADHD symptoms in girls/women - are they different? How might this affect rates of diagnosis? How might ADHD treatment differ for girls/women? Tune in to find out more.

 

Detailed show notes:

In today’s episode, we cover the findings in a paper published in 2020 titled “Females with ADHD”. Findings covered in this episode include: 

  • How ADHD symptoms may differ in girls and women compared to boys and men. How behavioural expectations and inattentive ADHD may affect referral rates in girls and women. 
  • The associated vulnerabilities of girls with ADHD - unplanned pregnancies and sexually transmitted infections. 
  • Pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments of ADHD in girls and women - should there be a difference? 
  • Educational and occupational considerations and adjustments - what might we do in schools and the workplace to support ADHDers?
