Title: “Doesn’t everyone do that?” An exploration into the effect of late recognition of ADHD in women

Summary: Since 2020, there has been an estimated increase of 400% of adults seeking a diagnosis for ADHD, of this, a huge percentage are women. The talk focusses on the lack of diagnosis of girls, and the challenging journey through life that some women with undiagnosed ADHD can experience (as well as the successes that ADHD can contribute to). I explore the misunderstandings around the condition, the high percentage of women with ADHD in prisons, the highs, and lows of hyper focus, the draw to the creative industries, and the daily struggles with inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity.

After a late adult diagnosis of ADHD, the subject is now an area of interest from a teaching and learning perspective. Rosie is raising awareness of ADHD and the prevalence of characteristics amongst those in the creative industries.

Rosie Elvin is a senior lecturer in Interior Architecture. She has extensive teaching and design experience working in both the field of interior design and architecture in the UK and Ireland. Her teaching focusses on adaptive re-use of existing buildings, with an emphasis on human occupation and design inclusivity. Rosie is an active member of ‘Interior Educators’ and chairs the category which addresses issues of social justice and equity for all, for the annual IE student project awards.
