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.

Check out the following Web sites for great info on teens with ADHD:


* National Resource Center on ADHD at help4adhd.org
* Children and Adults with ADHD at chadd.org
* ADDvance, a site for girls and women who have ADD and ADHD, at addvance.com
