    Hi @sarahmullins02 welcome to the community.

    What sort of behaviour does she display that makes you think it is ADHD? Do you see a specialist for her?

    Could those symptoms be down to the developmental delay?  Is she under a specialist for her needs? Does your daughter go to nursery?

    There's info here about ADHD, it says;
    If your GP thinks your child may have ADHD, they may first suggest a period of "watchful waiting" lasting around 10 weeks – to see if your child's symptoms improve, stay the same or get worse.

    I hope you get somewhere with your GP.  I hope there will be other members along soon with some experience of little ones with ADHD  :)
