I have come across the question of why ADHD is higher in boys than girls. That is an excellent question! However, the answer is, ADHD is not more common in boys than girls; both suffer from ADHD without significant difference in incidence. The difference is in the hyperactive manifestation of ADHD; the boys move around more than girls; do more disruption to class than girls; during their teenage years when the testosterone kicks in, they become more aggressive than girls. The girls with ADHD have the same incidence as far as the attention deficit is concerned. However, attention deficit alone does not catch the attention teachers and caretaker and hence not reported and tests done by professionals.
