Women with Attention Deficit Disorder

by Sari Solden


Although Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is as common among girls as it is in boys, it is largely under-recognized in girls.

According to psychotherapist Sari Solden, because women are expected to behave a certain way since childhood, women with ADD/ADHD learn to hide their struggles, meaning their symptoms can remain undiagnosed for years. Solden has 30 years of experience treating both men and women with ADD/ADHD and has written extensively on the subject.

In Women with Attention Deficit Disorder, Solden proposes a model that combines medication, education, strategies, support, and therapy to treat the symptoms of the condition.

Don't keep trying the same things that haven't worked before and don't keep coping alone. Expand your idea of organizational help to include other people, other people to coach you.
