Summary

Insights and best practice for professionals on ADHD in girls and women. 

Written by expert professionals, this book provides comprehensive information about available support for women and girls with ADHD and tips for clinicians and professionals who work with them. 

The symptoms of ADHD are no less impairing in females than males but can be missed or misunderstood. This book arms professionals, parents and women themselves as it maps out where to go for information, who can help and how to understand ADHD better. It explains routes to assessment and diagnosis for girls and young women, how to access support in education, available treatments and the impact of living with ADHD on overall mental health. It explores the benefits of ADHD coaching for girls to help develop their unique strengths and talents. 

There is also a focus on ADHD diagnosis for women in adulthood and specific advice about treatment and medication for later in life. Central to the book are the personal experiences of ADHD from women and girls from a variety of backgrounds. These tell of late diagnosis, missed opportunities, a lifetime of adaptations and the power of recognition and treatment and are powerful stories for professionals and individuals with ADHD alike.

Not an ADHD friendly read at all

It has some interesting information and it’s nice that it’s directed to women however it’s such a boring listen compared to some other books in this topic. Partly because narration is super slow needs to be listened to at 1.1 to make it bearable. It’s like Siri is reading you a book. It’s full of statistics thrown at you and very repetitive at places. Due to the chapters being written by different people the book isn’t too coherent and it’s not well written at all. I understand that it was written By doctors and ADHD specialist but it still could have been written down in a way that it doesn’t feel like I’m reading a book of random statistics and notes of a study. I listened to this right after listening to Scattered Minds and it was so underwhelming afterwards. I was really looking forward to this one as it’s so current while the other one is a bit dated still I feel like it gave me so much more than this book.

Sleepy narration

Any women with ADHD who wish to learn about the subject will struggle to do so by listening to this book! The narrator is a terrible fit - the ADHD brain is geared towards interest, and although the subject matter is interesting, the narrator's voice is monotonous and dreary. I found listening incredibly dull!

I've read great reviews of this book, and intend to purchase a hard copy instead.

pointless&repetitive

you can find out way more information by reading a quick article from Google. she says the same 5 sentences on a loop throughout the entire book. seriously. do a quick Google search and find out this informative in 4-5 sentences and save yourself tons of time and money.
