Women and ADHD: Finding Answers at Renewing Mindsets in Philadelphia and the Main Line


ADHD testing for women in Philadelphia with Renewing Mindsets evaluates how symptoms present in girls and females for proper diagnosis and care.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by challenges with focusing, sitting still, controlling impulses and organizing tasks. While historically considered a “male” condition, we now recognize ADHD affects women and girls equally. However, it frequently goes undetected and undertreated in females, leading to impaired functioning across life domains.


At Renewing Mindsets, we specialize in comprehensive ADHD testing and tailored treatment for women and girls. Our team of female ADHD specialists takes the time to thoroughly evaluate the unique presentations of ADHD in women. We then craft integrative treatment plans to provide clarity, validation and pathways to reaching one’s potential.


Why ADHD Testing is Critical for Women


  • ADHD often manifests differently in women than men, with less external hyperactivity and more internal restlessness, disorganization, and inattention. This leads to frequent under-diagnosis.


  • Thorough, multi-modal ADHD testing is crucial for accurately identifying ADHD in women.

  • Clinical interviews

  • Rating scales

  • Cognitive testing

  • Information from loved ones


  • Proper diagnosis provides validation and allows women to get the treatment they need to thrive. Missed or inaccurate diagnosis means needless suffering.
