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.

Learning Objectives
After completing this activity, the reader should be better able to:

  1. Interview women patients for chronic health complaints that can signal underlying ADHD.
  2. Differentiate ADHD symptoms to look for in female vs male patients.
  3. Reduce misdiagnosis of anxiety and depression in women, and query further about underlying ADHD.
  4. Recognize hormonal and emotional dysregulation cycles, isolated social life, and CNS hyper-sensitivities as potentials for ADHD screening.
