My name is Brenda, and I’m raising 2 (possibly 3) girls with ADHD.
Oh, and I also probably have ADHD, although I’ve never taken the time to officially diagnose myself. 😀
Our journey with girls with ADHD started when my eldest daughter was 3. She had a lot more anxiety, emotional ups and downs, and stress than is typical for a child that young.
We started to suspect she had ADHD about the age of 7, although her official diagnosis came when she was 9.
Our second daughter showed signs of ADHD pretty much from birth. However, she is just now 7, and before this point, her schools and doctors did not want to start the diagnosis process. She is currently in evaluation.
My third daughter, is 1, and currently shows no signs of ADHD, but you never know in our family! With a dad and mom who both have ADHD, it’s likely our whole family is an ADHD family.
One thing that you’ve probably found as a parent of a daughter with ADHD is that it is harder to get help for girls with ADHD.
Research, assistance, and many school programs are designed with boys in mind, so girls often fall through the cracks.
But not here.
At ADHDSupergirls, we believe that ADHD is a superpower.
We believe that girls with ADHD should be acknowledged, but more than that, they should be celebrated!
We believe that girls with ADHD have unique struggles and superpowers that make them different from boys with ADHD.
We are here for girls with ADHD.
Welcome to the supergirl family!
