    S2 EP5: Why is ADHD often missed in women and girls?

    S2 EP5: Why is ADHD often missed in women and girls?

    The stereotypical image of ADHD is a naughty school boy who can't focus and disrupts the class. But women, girls and non-binary people can have ADHD too - and many go without a diagnosis because they don't fit this stereotype. This week Sam and Katie are joined by Pippa Simou, founder of The ADD-vantage, a support service hub for girls and women with ADHD. Pippa tells them how ADHD can look different in women and why it's important to recognise that it affects different people in different ways.
