Is your daughter inattentive, distracted, disorganized, discouraged and a daydreamer?  These are all characteristics of girls with AD/HD.

 Magnificent Minds is a parent coaching program that will provide information about girls with AD/HD from a neuro-developmental perspective for identification and interventions for girls with AD/HD.  Girls with AD/HD have been overlooked and under diagnosed and are “hidden in plain sight.”    There are many misconceptions and misunderstanding about girls with AD/HD.  Their talents and creativity are often unrecognized, as well as their intellectual potential.  It takes knowledge to understand girls with AD/HD. Let’s make a difference and raise girls with AD/HD to have self-assurance in their Magnificent Minds.

Magnificent Minds program will be presented in a book discussion format based on “Understanding Girls with AD/HD,” by Kathleen Nadeau, Ph.D., Ellen Littman, Ph.D., and Patricia Quinn, M.D..
