If a girl has ADHD but does not receive a diagnosis until adulthood, she may be at risk of developing other conditions or facing other challenges, such as:

  • having low self-esteem

  • developing coping strategies driven by unregulated emotion instead of problem-solving logic

  • tending to attribute success and difficulties to external factors, such as luck or chance, instead of seeing their own actions as responsible

  • having high levels of stress

  • developing an anxiety disorder

  • experiencing depression
