Following on from our talk last week with Dr Ellen Littman here is a timely video which may help you! Symptoms of ADHD in girls can be hard to decipher, which is why the condition is often overlooked and underreported by teachers and parents. Learn how to recognize it, in this video.

Symptoms of inattentive ADHD are more common among girls. They are also easier to ignore or misdiagnose than are stereotypical symptoms of hyperactivity.

THE HSE could face hundreds of legal actions over delays in carrying out special needs assessments of children with a range of conditions including autism, the High Court has heard.

The delays in carrying out the multi-disciplinary assessments extend for periods up to two years and the reasons include an insufficient number of psychologists.

Think of the word “diagnosis” and in all likelihood, you think of something bad. But my diagnosis – for ADHD – is one of the most important events in my life.

It gave me an explanation for why I struggled with things the rest of the world seemed to find so easy. I was given a way to understand myself and how I think. That understanding gave me control for the first time in my life. Most importantly, I had a way forward: to manage and make my life better.

Most times, when I see “ADHD” and “mom” in the same sentence, it’s not about being a mom with ADHD, but about parenting a child with ADHD. I know this is a reality for many, and I’m in no way discounting the experience of others, but I’d like to make sure that people remember that this is a condition that affects more than just children.

This is what it’s like for me as a mom with ADHD raising a daughter.
