How does ADHD affect girls and women?

Girls and women are more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD later in life, and they may have different symptoms than boys and men. For example, girls may be more likely to daydream and be creative, while boys may be more physically active and aggressive. Girls and women with ADHD may also have more difficulty with organization and time management. ADHD can affect girls and women of all ages, but it is most commonly diagnosed in childhood or adolescence. Girls and women with ADHD may have trouble in school, at work, or in relationships. They may also have problems with anxiety, depression, or substance abuse. Treatment for ADHD can help girls and women manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
