RECOGNISING ATTENTION DEFICIT/HYPERACTIVITY IN (ADHD) IN GIRLS AND WOMEN

Women and girls may have different symptoms when presenting with possible undiagnosed ADHD. In contrast to men and boys suspected of having ADHD, often presenting with externalising symptoms (e.g., impulsivity, hyperactivity), girls and women may present with internalising symptoms (e.g., inattention, low mood, and anxiety) (Quin & Madhoo, 2014). Teachers and parents, who are often the first to question whether the child has ADHD, sometimes miss this subtle presentation of ADHD in girls. At times, school reports of these girls provide feedback saying: “She has a lot of potential; she needs to apply herself better.”
Without further assessment, these symptoms can continue to persist across the lifespan and have a significant impact on interpersonal relationships and careers. Quite often, undiagnosed ADHD presents with severe functional impairment when the client, takes on tertiary education, becomes a parent, or takes on a demanding role at work (Fedele et al., 2012). At these times, women often present with low self-esteem and performance anxiety (Quin & Wigal, 2004).
Sometimes a missed diagnosis of ADHD in women and girls happens when anxiety or depression become the main presentation. Differential diagnosis should play a role, particularly when anxiety or depression are resistant to treatment. Developing greater awareness of the presentation of ADHD in girls and women is paramount for healthcare professionals to provide diagnosis and refer to management and support.
