What does the parent of an AD/HD child do once a diagnosis has been rendered? In my experience you pick up and devour every book that you can get your hands on. However, if your AD/HD child happens to be a girl, you will encounter far more boys that share that diagnosis and the books that you read follow that gender slant. This book seeks to explain how that bias has evolved. It goes into great detail to give the reader an understanding of how social, cultural and behavioral differences have historically kept diagnosis of AD/HD in girls at bay. In my opinion it is an essential guide to helping parents/family/friends and neighbors to understand and recognize the (sometimes less obvious) symptoms of AD/HD in the female population and to manage the unique issues that come along for the ride.
