adhd 11 yr old girlHi, my daughter is 11 yrs old. I have been concerned about the behaviour and personality development for the past few years and finally met with a counselor yesterday who advised me that the pattern fits into the 'silent' ADHD category more common with girls. A few details about my daughter. She is an IVF baby, pregnancy was fine, cesarean delivery. She is quite distracted in class, cannot seem to focus on the lessons going on, slow in writing, untidy work and writing, does not take any pride in her work, sets no goals or challenges for herself, quite emotional these days, difficult to get her to sit down and finish any task or study, not too much empathy,
very messy and disorganized. Everything is a battle and is quite irritable these days. She does not understand time management and homework and assignments are never completed. She loves sweet things. She is good with younger children and great with her younger sister. She prefers warm weather to cold but cannot drink anything hot.
She likes animals. Have read many postings in the forum about ADHD. Would appreciate some help too so that I can enjoy my beautiful daughter and help her achieve her potential.

23. Describe, how do you look like? Describe your overall appearance
Pretty features, thick black hair, very fair, black eyes, wears glasses, age appropriate height and weight, more tomboyish than feminine in action and dressing.
In the past few years, her behavior has settled down in some aspects and aggravated in some. Which is why I finally approached a counselor since she did not out grow it and it does not show signs of improving and will probably worsen with the onset of puberty. She seems to have more of the inattentive type of ADHD more than hyperactivity. Would appreciate help and guidance.
