You’re Smart and You’re ADHD – Now What?
Ellen Littman, Ph.D.
There are special issues that ADHD + gifted women face. Society expects high IQ women to “have it all together”, but ADHD still gets in the way. The results? Anxiety, low self-esteem, depression and more.
Dr. Littman discusses why high IQ ADHD women are often harder to diagnosis (often diagnosed later in life), their unique developmental challenges that contribute to their struggles, how they present differently from other women with ADHD, and what they can do to change their experience of living with ADHD.
