MORE ABOUT ADHD
While ADHD is more prevalent in boys--for every girl diagnosed, at least three boys are also diagnosed--experts agree that girls with ADHD are harder to identify. It is believed that this is because boys with ADHD are more likely than girls to have behavior problems. Girls often have less noticeable symptoms, such as inattentiveness and depression.
