The Emotional Lives of Girls with ADHD

029 Svvithovtröm

During adolescence, the brain and body undergo radical changes that are often associated with stress, depression, and anxiety. Some girls with ADHD begin to struggle academically and socially at school during puberty.

Many girls with ADHD say they feel different, like they don’t fit in. They put a great deal of effort into masking, while they internalize anxiety and depression. Big emotions can feel overwhelming and hard to control. Without proper support, teen girls can spiral into a rabbit hole of inner turmoil and self-doubt.

It’s important for caregivers, educators, and others to understand the special challenges facing girls with ADHD, from fluctuating hormones to social expectations.
