Listening sessions aim to learn more about females with ADHD, inform Center efforts
Starting soon, the Center will regularly host these online sessions
We at the Duke Center for Girls & Women with ADHD are happy to tell you about our upcoming community listening sessions! Our goal for these outreach sessions is to learn more about the experiences and needs of females with ADHD and their families so that the Center can best serve them.
The sessions – to be held in small groups via Zoom – will begin this spring and be held regularly in the future. A Center staff member will lead each session, share information about ADHD in females and answer questions on the topic. Participants will be compensated for their time.
“We are excited to listen to and learn from females about their unique experiences living with ADHD,” says Center Co-Director Julia Schechter, PhD. “Their stories will help us to better support this population by ensuring that the Center’s initiatives are directly informed by the lived experiences of girls and women with ADHD.”
There will be sessions aimed at specific groups of females with ADHD – adults, teenagers, minorities and post-menopausal women, for example – as well as at parents of girls with the condition.

Looking for the best school for your daughter with ADHD?
Our experts suggest questions to ask when choosing an educational setting
Parents and caregivers have some important things to consider when looking for schools for their daughters with ADHD. Overall, they should think about their girls’ unique strengths and needs – and remember that the right school for one child with ADHD might not be the best choice for another child with ADHD.
In this blog entry, our own Julia Schechter, PhD, and Naomi O. Davis, PhD, a clinical psychologist with the Duke ADHD Clinic, make some helpful suggestions for questions families can ask schools before choosing educational settings for their daughters.
Help us create a community to better serve girls and women with ADHD
Whether you’re the parent, caregiver or spouse of a female with ADHD, a woman with the condition, an educator, health care provider, researcher, employer or anyone else with an interest in ADHD in females, we hope you’ll help us build a network of education, research and outreach.
