ADHD Consulting Certification Blog on ADHD in Boys and Girls

ADHD manifests differently in different people but in general symptoms vary between boys and girls.    ADHD can be a big problem for children in school and at home and it is important to identify.  With ADHD Specialists, boys and girls can have symptoms managed through coping strategies or medication.

ADHD can be found in both boys and girls. Please also review AIHCP’s ADHD Consulting Certification


The article, “Do ADHD Symptoms Differ in Boys and Girls?” by Heather Jones takes a closer look at some differences.  She states,


“In general, boys with ADHD are more likely to have symptoms and behaviors that are more disruptive and, therefore, more noticeable. Not only does this have a “squeaky wheel” effect, but it reinforces the stereotype of a child with ADHD being a boy who “acts up” in class and is constantly on the go. Because girls with ADHD are usually less disruptive, it may not be as obvious that they are struggling. Daydreaming is not going to raise flags that are difficult to miss or ignore like frequent interrupting or the inability to stay seated.”
