1: ADHD in Women Misunderstood Symptoms (Littman, E. 2020)
Play • 13 min
Todays episode is a medically reviewed article by clinical psychologist Dr Ellen Littman.  Why ADHD in Women is Routinely Dismissed, Misdiagnosed, and Treated Inadequately. I've broken this up into two parts!

Derived from the ADDitude Expert Webinar “Why ADHD is Different for Women: Gender Specific Symptoms & Treatments” (ADDitude ADHD Experts Podcast episode #337) by Ellen Littman, Ph.D., which was broadcast live on December 15, 2020.
