Gender Differences and Age of Diagnosis in ADHD

Dr. Doron Almagor will be presenting our clinic's research finding this weekend at the European Congress of Psychiatry (EPA 2011) this weekend in Vienna, Austria. The research, titled Gender Differences and Age of Diagnosis in ADHD, confirms the finding the proportionally more men than women are diagnosed prior to adolescence. Pre-adolescent boys with ADHD tend to present with hyperactive sympoms of ADHD, which is more easily recognized by parents and teachers. Pre-adolescent girls on the other hand, may exhibit only symptoms of inattentiveness, are quiet and non-disruptive, and often go unrecognized as having ADHD until later in life.

 Look for postings of our research findings on these pages shortly.
