Raise your hand if you grew up imagining the hyper boy in class as the poster child for ADHD 🙋🏾♀️
Girls are often missed (Hello late diagnosis 👋🏾) because we’re:
-Inattentive vs Hyperactive ADHD type
-Internalizing our thoughts /struggles
-Brushing off certain signs such as forgetfulness or dyscalculia with ‘being a girl’
Being aware of how different girls may present can help them avoid self blame and receive appropriate accommodations in the classroom.
