ADDvance Resources

Our aim is to provide our site visitors with the best information available on ADHD. Here in our Resource Section you'll find a wide variety of information sources including:

The Center for Girls and Women with ADHD

Improved knowledge and a better understanding of girls and women with ADHD have the potential to improve many lives and relieve countless women of the shame with which they have grown up. To date, the medical community, as well as the general population, remains ignorant of the unique impact of ADHD on females. Current diagnostic criteria that continue to emphasize traits common to boys leave the majority of girls and women with ADHD to remain undiagnosed and misunderstood. To address this problem, the Center for Girls and Women with ADHD was founded in 1997.

Through Center sponsored seminars, newsletters, press releases, publications, monographs, and its website, parents, professionals, and educators will be able to obtain the most current information on diagnosis and treatment of ADHD in females across the lifespan. In addition, the struggles of women and girls with ADHD will be highlighted through the production by the Center of various programming and videos that will be made available to organizations and for public broadcast.
