ADHD Girls Ltd

ADHD Girls Ltd is a social impact company with a dual mission
to empower girls and women with ADHD to thrive in society and
improve societal understanding of neurodiversity via intersectional lens.

Powered by personal lived experiences of ADHD, we embody the neurodiversity movement,
which displaces the medical model of disability and recognises the barriers
presented through the way society organises itself. 

We believe that these barriers can be removed with adequate support.

Samantha Hiew, PhD

Founder & Director

Sam has worn many hats in her career, most notably a Keynote Speaker, Presenter, Communications Consultant, and Cancer Research Scientist.

Sam’s unique experience of growing up in Asia and living in the West for nearly 2 decades opened her eyes to how neurodiversity manifests when brain differences intersects with culture, class, race, and motherhood.

Diagnosed with ADHD aged 40 and identifying as an autistic, dyspraxic and Touretter, she is acutely aware of the challenges neurodivergents face in society’s education and workplace systems.

Sam is passionate about helping everyone reframe the medical labels given to neurodivergents, where we see each individual as more than their diagnosis, and through the lens of the broad spectrum of identities that sum up our human experiences.
