Your ADHD shows up 24/7 every day, week, year but sometimes it is worth while to look back over your shoulder to examine more closely how ADHD has affected you throughout your life. Dr. Stephen Hinshaw, prolific author and lead researcher on the sole longitudinal study of ADHD girls and young women, says ADHD for women has a long history of self blame and shame that may not have a place in your life today. This session also touches on parenting girls with ADHD with a top scientist who speaks to our hearts.
