Yes, Autism and ADHD are considered comorbid so can often both occur in the same person.

I am both Autistic (official diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder) and have ADHD, as is true for many people on the Autism spectrum. ADHD is often considered a cousin to ASD because the two can have similar and overlapping characteristics such as issues with communication and executive dysfunction.

ADHD and Autism are very similar in behavioral issues. Usually ADHD is diagnosed first and then is replaced with Autism and Asberger's Syndrome.

ADHD is a fake condition made-up by a drug company. The company had developed a new drug. Yet could Not find any thing it could help! So they made-up this fake condition! And pay extra to ones that do falsely label people with it! It is a devil following business!

Pray to GOD about this!

All people can get labeled with ADHD; is the side effects of the drug!

The 3 actually go hand in hand. Kids with autism normally have ADHD AND SPD as well. There are many though, that have ADHD and SPD but not autism. There is however a difference. ADHD is mainly hyperactivity, and a hard time focusing. Autism is developmental disorder and certain criteria is used to diagnose it. SPD is most commonly diagnosed by an Occupation Therapist. That is the one that is the most different of the disorders. A child with SPD can be a SEEKER, or an AVOIDER, or BOTH. My son is both. He seeks proprioceptive input a lot. (rough play, heavy lifting) He avoids Olfactory and auditory input (smell and hearing.) There are some great books out there to help you learn more. The Autism/ADHD connection is a great book. Aspergers Syndrome and Sensory Processing Disorder is an amazing book that really breaks down SPD for you. Lastly, Autism for Dummies was like my bible when my son was first diagnosed!


As far as we can tell there has been no increase in actual instances of ADHD or Autism, but here has been an increase in diagnoses of ADHD - probably due to improved training of physicians.There may be an appearance of increased ADHD or Autism because:Most people are not really experts on ADHD or Autism and cannot distinguish between these conditions and simple bad behavior by otherwise healthy children.Increased societal breakdown - especially increasing breakdown of the family support structure and the resulting loss of mentoring, nurturing and discipline provided in families - has led to significant increase in bad behavior in children. Coupled with the inability of most people to tell the difference between "brats" and those afflicted with ADHD or Autism spectrum disorders it makes it appear that these afflictions are increasing.


The same thing that causes all Autism now. It may have gone unnoticed for a very long time, but it was the same thing then as it is now.


A german sheperd and a pekinise at the same time.


Dr. Leo Kanner (1894-1981) and Dr. Hans Asperger (1906-1980) who were studying children with autism at the same time.


Yes. However, a doctor cannot diagnose someone with schizophrenia if he/she already has autism unless he/she has bizarre delusions or hallucinations.


There is no known cure for autism at this time.


They both contract at the same time.


No. However, taking both Adderall and Concerta at the same time can be extremely dangerous. Adderall and Concerta are both brand names for stimulants used to treat ADHD/ADD and narcolepsy. Consult with your doctor.


No. ADHD stands for Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and is very common is kids. It is a developmental disorder and the severity ranges from person to person. It is just the inability to concentrate, the inability to think or process thoughts, like "think before you do" kinda thing. Most of the time it includes uncontrolable and very sensitive anger. sometimes it can be helped by eating better and learning different learning and copeing styles. Autism is an actual mild form of retardation and is not even close to ADHD, which really is not a technical "disorder" because its so common. People with autism mainly cannot communicate. Sometimes it is just very poor social skills, other times it is the inability to speak at all. the Two are very, VERY, different.


ADHD is a disorder where the individual is hyper-active and cannot focus his/her attenion on a perticular objject for the normal length of time. Autism is a disorder where the individual have poor Social Skills, don't know how to read body language and lack the ability of empathizing with others. This may be as a result of lack of mirror neurons in the brain. Try to read about mirror neurons in order to know what exactly they are.


Yes do believe so, not including ADD. I think every one in this world has a lack of attention span at some time (add) ADHD is a dif story I think that ADHD is commonly diagnosed and should be renamed: A DISORDER that Hasn't been Diagnosed. I am convinced of it... was overmedicated on those drugs for years just to find out that I was bipolar...which the symptoms dont really show up until mid 20's I am 23 now and was on those bad adhd drugs since 18 instead of the doctor saying he "didnt know" It is my mission to bring light to this issue...psych are using adhd as a cop out! My daughter's school asked me to have her re-evaluated to add adhd and ocd to her diagnosis of severe autism but, according to specialists they most likely won't add it because some disorders like ADHD, OCD and, fewer times, tourettes are components of autism and aren't necessarily an entirely separate disorder.


Of course! Misdiagnoses are common, especially in mental disorders. This is partly because the symptoms do not necessarily lead to the disease, but also because many different disorders can have similar symptoms. In particular, symptoms of OCD and ADHD can look very much alike but they are actually opposite malfunctions of the same part of the brain. In OCD this part of the brain is overactive and in ADHD it is underactive. Unfortunately, this has often led to diagnoses of "comorbid" ADHD and OCD, but researchers are discovering that the brain processes are actually opposite, which means it would be impossible to have both at the same time.


Dr. Leo Kanner (1894-1981), who was born in Klekotow, Austria, is one of the first persons to study autism. He was a psychiatrist and physician who published a paper in 1943, "Autistic Disturbances of Affective Contact", describing his work with children who would now be labeled as having autism. Dr. Hans Asperger (1906-1980), another pediatrician born in Austria, also studied autism, but he studied children who, from his descriptions of them, had high-functioning autism or Asperger's Syndrome. His first paper on this was published in 1944. Both Kanner and Asperger were studying children with autism at the same time, and their work has contributed to our current understanding of autism.


God is both big and small at the same time.


Yes, he does do both at the same time. I saw him in concert and he did both at the same time.



Yes, you can get both at the same time.


Yeah, many people have these 2 disorders, like Liv Tyler and Salma Hayek


Can a government be both a monarchy and an anarchy at the same time


No, she can be 160 cm, or 175 cm, but not both at the same time.No, she can be 160 cm, or 175 cm, but not both at the same time.No, she can be 160 cm, or 175 cm, but not both at the same time.No, she can be 160 cm, or 175 cm, but not both at the same time.


You cannot 'get' autism, you are born Autistic. Autism is a neurological difference so you're Autistic from the time your brain develops in the second trimester. Autism is a result of genetic factors.


There is this possibility but there is no way to know for sure. There is no genetic testing at this time to determine how much genetics plays a role in autism.


No, unless they are allergic, I have autism and eat soybeand all the time
