“Far too many girls with ADHD grow up without appropriate diagnosis and treatment. Parents have been yearning for a science-based book like this one to help them address the needs of their daughters, and finally, it is here! Dr. Hinshaw is one of the pioneers of studying ADHD in girls and following them to adulthood. There simply is no better book on this topic.”

—Russell A. Barkley, PhD, ABPP, ABCN, author of Taking Charge of ADHD

“Dr. Hinshaw provides a user-friendly treasure trove of information on ADHD in girls. As a leading expert in this area for decades, he skillfully navigates many of the controversies and misunderstandings while offering families state-of-the-art knowledge. While written for parents, the book is also valuable reading for professionals. Highly recommended!”

—Timothy E. Wilens, MD, Chief, Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Massachusetts General Hospital; Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School

“This book provides a roadmap for parenting girls with ADHD. It resonates with our daughter's experiences so far, offers fantastic conversation starters for our family, and leaves us hopeful about the future. As a social worker and educator as well as a parent, I believe this book should be required reading for professionals who work with children and adolescents.”

—Brett C., San Francisco

“A 'must read'! This unique book covers everything you need to know about the long-overlooked challenges facing girls with ADHD. It outlines the most effective evidence-based treatments and how they can be tailored to help girls thrive. The pages are filled with sage advice as well as inspiration and hope.”

—Linda J. Pfiffner, PhD, Professor and Director, Hyperactivity, Attention, and Learning Problems Program, University of California, San Francisco

“I am profoundly grateful for Dr. Hinshaw's wisdom and compassion for families, along with his scientific knowledge. He has an extraordinary talent for explaining complex ideas. As an adult with ADHD and learning disabilities, and as a parenting coach, I'm heartened that Dr. Hinshaw emphasizes the concepts of radical acceptance and radical commitment to changing the family climate. I wish my parents had had this book when I was growing up!”

—Rona Renner, RN, author of Is That Me Yelling?: A Parent's Guide to Getting Your Kids to Cooperate Without Losing Your Cool

“The leading authority on ADHD in girls, Dr. Hinshaw distills decades of research evidence in this accessible how-to guide. He empathically walks you through getting an accurate diagnosis, obtaining individualized school services, and finding effective treatments. Dr. Hinshaw’s goals are to destigmatize ADHD in girls and empower you to help your daughter live her best life. This book is a 'must read.'”

—Andrea Chronis-Tuscano, PhD, Joel and Kim Feller Endowed Professor, Department of Psychology, University of Maryland

“There is no one better equipped than Dr. Hinshaw to distill all we know (and still don't know) about the unique ways ADHD affects girls. As a family member of many people with ADHD, I couldn't put this book down. As a teen psychologist who works predominantly with girls who have ADHD, I'll be handing it out in the waiting room! Buy this book—your neurodiverse daughter will thank you, and you'll return to it again and again.”

—Esme A. L. Shaller, PhD, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of California, San Francisco

“Backed by Dr. Hinshaw's decades of careful research and clinical care, this authoritative, practical, and compassionate guide will be immensely useful to parents and professionals alike.”
