ADHD and Women Part 1 – Differences in Diagnosis – 1.0 Credits

In this first of a two part series on ADHD and Women, Ellen Littman, PhD describes the significant difference in symptoms of ADHD in women vs men. Because diagnostic criteria for ADHD were developed in the early 1900’s based upon the symptoms of hyperactive boys, many young females and even older women have been missed in diagnosis. We now know what to look for in women with ADHD, and Part 1 provides that clarity for screening and diagnosis.
