expertise in ADHD.
Come grow with us. Please let us know if you find valuable
ADHD resources that should be included in this site.
And let us know of the kinds of information you are seeking

The originial ADDvance.com site was created to address the
long-overlooked needs of women and girls with ADHD.
Drs. Nadeau and Quinn devoted over seven years of their lives
to addressing the needs of women and girls. Drs. Quinn and
Nadeau created, edited and published ADDvance Magazine, a
bi-monthly magazine for women with ADD (ADHD) that was in
publication for over four years.
They also wrote or edited three ground-breaking books focusing
on women and girls with ADD (ADHD):
Understanding Girls with ADHD,
Understanding Women with ADHD,
Gender Issues and ADHD.
Drs. Nadeau and Quinn have lectured widely, both in the
U.S. and abroad, on the topic of women and girls with ADHD.
Dr. Quinn spearheaded the creation of a nonprofit advocacy
organization for women and girls with ADHD, The
National Center for Girls and Women with ADHD. Drs. Quinn
and Nadeau were co-founders of the Center and Dr. Quinn
served as its executive director. Following their varied efforts
and undertakings over the years, Drs. Nadeau and Quinn
feel gratified by the growing recognition of ADHD in
females - both in the general public and in the professional
community. Drs. Quinn and Nadeau will continue their important
work supporting the needs of girls and women with ADHD
and will continue to provide information for women and girls
through the Women and Girls section of the new ADDvance.com
Dr. Nadeau, in addition to writing and lecturing, serves
as director of the Chesapeake ADHD Center of Maryland. She continues
an active clinical practice and provides training and supervision
to both staff members and students.
