520 Although an increasing number of girls are diagnosed with
ADHD every year, most of the focus of parent and teacher
interventions has been on boys, leaving girls with ADHD
frustrated and prone to acting out. Written by two
professionals who have "been there and done that" with
their own children with ADHD, Raising Girls with ADHD
provides expert information to empower parents to make
decisions about identification, treatment options,
behavioral strategies, personal/social adjustment,
educational impact, and many other issues from preschool
through high school. These girls' struggles with
socialization and peer acceptance, executive functioning
skills like memory and organization, and emotional well-
being and self-confidence are discussed with a goal of
maximizing strengths and providing supports for
weaknesses. Complete self-reflection surveys and action
steps for parents and girls alike are included to create a
dynamic action plan for your daughter's success in school
