Understanding Girls with ADHD does not shy away from key areas of controversy. How, for example, can a family know whether it's ADHD or another set of problems that's the primary issue? How does one deal with the potential use of medication, which is plagued by bad press and abundant myths but which can, as part of a multi-faceted treatment plan, provide great benefit if the right dose is found and if the doctor works with the family to monitor positive effects and side effects carefully? What about longterm risk for eating pathology, substance abuse, and other difficult areas of impairment of salience for girls? How can girls and their families break through the thicket of negative expectations and sometimes toxic family interactions to pave the way for a different set of outcomes?
Always sensitive, and without hesitation in providing an authoritative tone, this book will empower girls and their families in ways that are sorely needed. Its emphasis on gender-specific manifestations of ADHD and its inclusion of practical means of attacking the executive function deficits that plague girls and women with ADHD will ensure its continued status as core guidebook.

A must for parents with girls who have ADHD
I found this book extremely helpful in understanding my daughter (6) with ADHD. i have learnt so much, I'm sure it will make it easier for us to manage as she grows older. I love how the book is divided in different age categories and the characteristics/problems/solutions for various ages. I want to buy a couple of copies and hand it to her teachers, therapists and family members. Although people are more informed about ADHD nowadays, it is truly sad how little is known in the general population about how it presents itself in girls/women . (or even among educators and therapists who are not up to date with the latest information). A must read for parents who have a daughter with ADHD. (diagnosed or not)
