ADD & ADHD Girls Help
If your daughter has ADHD or your suspect she might have ADHD/ ADD, I hope you’ve found my book, Raising Girls with ADHD: Secrets for Parenting Healthy, Happy Daughters published by Prufrock Press. In the book my coauthor and I outline why ADHD is different in girls as compared to boys. We stress a proactive approach for helping ADHD girls because girls are at a much higher risk for emotional problems than boys so early detection and support is important.
One key feature in the Raising Girls with ADHD book is the dynamic action plan. We created this and have used it with clients to help guide a girl’s future. Have you ever felt like you’ve been trying so many different things to help but none have made a meaningful difference? If yes, you are not alone. This is a frequent feeling that many parents have when they come work with me and my team. I have a parent specialist who will sit with you, listen to your concerns, and then help guide you using the Dynamic Action Plan. Wouldn’t it feel good to have direction and confirmation?
This process is billed at an hourly rate and typically takes about two hours, costing under 300. In addition to the initial planning, we can come along side you and your family and provide ongoing guidance from once or twice a week or customize a plan to help your and your daughter. One thing we’ve learned over the years of doing this is that the time and money you invest in this proactive way helps prevent potentially serious future emotional problems. We discuss this in the Raising Girls with ADHD book because it’s well documented in research that girls with ADHD Combined Type have a much higher likelihood of having co-occurring issues ranging from self-esteem to self-harm.
