If you’d like to read up on how ADHD manifests in girls and women, here’s a really good starting point of books I’d recommend:

Understanding Girls with ADHD by Kathleen G. Nadeau, Ellen Littman, Patricia O. Quinn
What I love about this book are the age-related checklists from pre-school to high school to help parents and professionals better identify and help girls with ADHD.

Understanding ADHD in Girls and Women edited by Joanne Steer. There is a chapter around how parents can navigate the legal side to seek support and accommodation for their children.

ADHD: an A to Z by Leanne Maskell
Leanne wrote this book when she was trying to navigate the complicated world of ADHD. It is a clear and practical guide on all aspects of how it can affect our lives.

Journeys Through ADDulthood – Discover a New Sense of Identity and Meaning with Attention Deficit Disorder by Sari Solden MS.
This book is a step-by-step guide through three stages, or journeys: toward understanding your brain and your primary symptoms; toward discovering your true identity and embracing your uniqueness; and toward learning to share your true self to connect with others.

Dopamine Nation: Finding Balance in the Age of Indulgence by Dr Anna Lembke
This book helps you understand how to find contentment by keeping dopamine in check and offer easy to understand neurobiology about dopamine, which is often present at a lower level in the ADHD brain.

The Molecule of More: How a Single Chemical in Your Brain Drives Love, Sex, and Creativity – And Will Determine the Fate of the Human Race by Daniel Z. Lieberman, MD and Michael E. Long
The authors present a potentially life-changing proposal: Much of human life has an unconsidered component that explains an array of behaviours previously thought to be unrelated, including why winners cheat, why geniuses often suffer with mental illness, why nearly all diets fail, and why the brains of liberals and conservatives really are different.
