Our aim is to provide our site visitors with the best information
available on AD/HD. Here in our Resource Section you'll
find a wide variety of information sources including:
The Center for Girls and Women with AD/HD
Improved knowledge and a better understanding of girls and
women with AD/HD 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 AD/HD
on females. Current diagnostic criteria that continue to emphasize
traits common to boys leave the majority of girls and women
with AD/HD to remain undiagnosed and misunderstood. To
address this problem, the Center for Girls and Women with AD/HD 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 AD/HD in females across
the lifespan. In addition, the struggles of women and girls
with AD/HD 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.
