ADHD in Girls: How to Recognize the Symptoms

In this video I highlight the different ways ADHD symptoms tend to express themselves in girls. For a better sense of ADHD in general check out “How to Know if You Have ADHD:” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cx13a2-unjE

To clarify: I am not suggesting that there is a “girl” or a “boy” form of ADHD. Either gender can have the hyperactivity component, and either gender can be primarily inattentive. In this video I talk about what is more common; however, it’s important that we learn to recognize both forms in both genders.
