In this episode, I talk to Ella, a second-year Trainee Educational Psychologist at Birmingham University who is about to embark on her doctoral thesis research. That research will explore a feminist perspective on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
Ella and I discuss her experiences of having and being diagnosed with ADHD whilst at University. We discuss the nature of the role of research in informing perceptions of the condition and how Ella feels her activist stance can help to challenge stereotypes of ADHD and enrich the understanding of the experience in girls.
