ADHD affects girls as well as boys

From the CEC Smart Brief:

A new University of California at Berkeley study of six- to 12-year-old girls in day camps found that females with ADHD tend to use "relational aggression," such as excluding others from social groups or spreading rumors, rather than the physical aggression seen in boys with the disorder. Study co-author Stephen Hinshaw says ADHD drugs seem to be as effective for girls as they are for boys. (South Africa) (5/19)
