Gender Differences in ADHD

Join us for this important workshop to learn about the gender differences in children and young adults with ADHD. ADHD is commonly diagnosed in childhood, although it is diagnosed much more frequently in boys than in girls. Unlike boys, many of whom show hyperactivity, girls’ symptoms may present more toward inattentiveness and disorganization. Girls tend to develop ADHD later than boys. Some ADHD symptoms can become less intense for boys after they pass through puberty. For many girls, it gets worse.

Patricia Quinn, MD, will discuss the gender differences in ADHD and the important implications in diagnosis and treatment. Dr. Quinn is an internationally recognized authority on ADHD and the author of more than 20 books on the topic of ADHD in children, teens, and adults.
