ADHD and Common Comorbidities

What's in this issue?

Do your child’s “autism traits” resemble what others describe as “ADHD characteristics”? Perhaps your child is distracted, restless, has intense focus on particular subjects, or is labeled “hyper” by friends and family. Autism and ADHD diagnosis rates have rapidly increased since the 1980s, and many children with one of these conditions show signs of the other. Sometimes, children can be overlooked for a diagnosis of ADHD because they have already been diagnosed with autism (and vice versa). This issue takes a look at some of the challenges faced by children with autism and ADHD, as well as offering tips and support for families. Dive in and enjoy the read.
