Seed Talks: ADHD & Women: Misunderstood, Misdiagnosed + Moving Forward for Change

16 January @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

£13.50

TICKETS AVAILABLE AT: GLEE.CO.UK

With Dr Lucy Thompson
Discover the nuances of how ADHD presents itself differently within women, and tips on how to manage your neurodiversity. Followed by Q+A

From 2019 to 2021, there was a 3200% increase in women who took online ADHD tests. The condition presents differently in girls and women, and as a result often flies under the radar – with boys being 3-7 times more likely to be diagnosed than girls.

This talk will explore how women and girls with ADHD are missed, misdiagnosed and misunderstood. We will discuss important topics such as adult ADHD, getting diagnosed later in life and insights from research exploring the real lived experience of women and girls with ADHD. You will learn why women and girls with ADHD present differently to males – including the popular notion of ‘masking’.

This event will have an emphasis on taking control of your journey, improving your understanding of ADHD in women and girls, and how to move forward with self-acceptance, compassion and implementing positive change. Come down early to grab a good seat!
