Girls often don’t get diagnosed
From Lisa Tims, special education specialist
What is fascinating is that many girls with ADD have quite a high rate of IQ and could be called “gifted”. When a child has a high IQ there are no problems in school work, but their lack loopholes get reflected as they mature into adults. Keep in mind that ADD is not a learning disorder, and patients do not inevitably are poor performers in school. Till high school they can be quite well off, but with mounting pressure and assignments symptoms may become more and more evident.
She also describes the “tomboys”, the “chattys”, and the daydreamers, so not all girls with ADD ADHD look alike.
