Compared to boys, girls are less likely to receive a diagnosis of ADHD, or their symptoms aren’t recognized until much later in life. How can you support your daughters with ADHD? Why does this lack of awareness happen so often? What are the costs associated with this under-recognition? Are outcomes different for girls of color or gender-fluid kids? Dr. Megan Moxey of Small Brooklyn Psychology discussed her research and clinical experience with girls with ADHD, and Dr. Mandi White-Ajmani moderated a Q&A session with attendees.
This webinar will help you:
- Understand how symptoms of ADHD present in girls
- Recognize differences in symptomatology between boys and girls
- Weigh the different treatment approaches to support girls with ADHD
- Plan what you can do at home to support your daughters
This webinar was conducted in partnership with Park Slope Parents, an incredible resource for parents in Brooklyn (and beyond). The recording is available to members for free and to non-members for $25. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for access.
