Message from the Editor: All About Women With ADHD

This week we have some exciting news to share! We have been thrilled to see so many wonderful events planned dedicated to building awareness and support for women with ADHD in the coming months. Of course, the acknowledged pioneer in recognizing ADHD in women is Sari Solden, who created a big stir in the ADHD community 20 years ago with her book, “Women with ADHD”. That’s why ADDA is so honored to be announcing a partnership with Sari Solden, a pioneer in the field and one of the earliest supporters of ADDA.

In May, Sari is hosting a one-of-a-kind event – a non-conference – called the Better Together Festival. Since ADDA isn’t a position to have a conference this year, we were elated to hear about this wonderful, live event celebrating women with ADHD.

Just as the name of Sari’s event declares, we truly are “better together”, which is why ADDA is collaborating with Sari to bring you more resources and content geared specifically towards women. In fact, we are starting an entire section of our Web site dedicated to women with ADHD. This corner of ADDA will feature information and resources sure to hit home with many of you and it will even feature an “Ask Sari” column. You can already submit your questions for Sari to answer in a monthly video address right on the new women’s Web page.  We hope you enjoy this new addition as much as we do!

Check out the new women’s page now!
Until next week,

Believe in yourself!

      Hi! As a probably undiagnosed ADD young woman (I certainly don’t dare to diagnose myself, but I see myself in ADD so much it almost makes me cry), I think this is great news: I noticed ADD differs between males and females, and we are probably under-diagnosed for this reason (just speaking through intuition) and maybe even end up feeling like “frauds”, so more information is just what we need. However, I have a question: will all the articles be video-recorded? I have a weird aversion to videos, I get distracted by strange voices and drift off and then I have to go back and it’s just more difficult to me.
      If you’re planning to only do videos, what other resources would you suggest? I love this website, but I’d like to get more women-oriented information.
      PS: this is not completely related and it’s less important, but is there a forum for adult ADDers you would suggest?
