Attention deficit disorder is multi-faceted, far-reaching, and largely hidden. What caregivers and educators see poking above the surface are just a fraction of its symptoms. This is critical to keep in mind, and to guide your daily teaching and learning tactics.

First-hand experience with her daughters has also helped her spot girls with ADHD symptoms and steer families towards a diagnosis. It's estimated that one in 20 children has ADHD and boys are three times more likely than girls to be diagnosed but Carolyn believes this is because it is often not picked up in childhood.
