About Us

Welcome to the new! Kathleen Nadeau, Ph.D. and Patricia Quinn, M.D. (both internationally recognized authorities on ADHD and authors of numerous books on ADHD) have completely redesigned this site to provide answers to questions about ADHD for families and individuals at every stage of life from preschool through retirement years.

We hope that you visit this site often as it grows and develops. We will feature articles written by Drs. Nadeau and Quinn as well as invited articles by others - both individuals living with the challenge of ADHD and other professionals with expertise in ADHD.

Come grow with us. Please let us know if you find valuable ADHD resources that should be included in this site. And let us know of the kinds of information you are seeking about ADHD. As we hear from you, this site will grow in response to your needs.

Send your suggestions for articles to us via our contact page.

The originial site was created to address the long-overlooked needs of women and girls with ADHD. Drs. Nadeau and Quinn devoted over seven years of their lives to addressing the needs of women and girls. Drs. Quinn and Nadeau created, edited and published ADDvance Magazine, a bi-monthly magazine for women with ADD (ADHD) that was in publication for over four years.

They also wrote or edited three ground-breaking books focusing on women and girls with ADD (ADHD):

Understanding Girls with ADHD,
Understanding Women with ADHD,
Gender Issues and ADHD.

Drs. Nadeau and Quinn have lectured widely, both in the U.S. and abroad, on the topic of women and girls with ADHD.

Dr. Quinn spearheaded the creation of a nonprofit advocacy organization for women and girls with ADHD, The National Center for Girls and Women with ADHD. Drs. Quinn and Nadeau were co-founders of the Center and Dr. Quinn served as its executive director. Following their varied efforts and undertakings over the years, Drs. Nadeau and Quinn feel gratified by the growing recognition of ADHD in females - both in the general public and in the professional community. Drs. Quinn and Nadeau will continue their important work supporting the needs of girls and women with ADHD and will continue to provide information for women and girls through the Women and Girls section of the new

Dr. Nadeau, in addition to writing and lecturing, serves as director of the Chesapeake ADHD Center of Maryland. She continues an active clinical practice and provides training and supervision to both staff members and students.
