ADHD diagnosis along with autism

ADHD diagnosis along with autism

I was wondering if anyone has a child with both diagnoses and how did they differentiate between the two. I feel as if my lil guy may have both but I’m not sure because I feel the two have so many similar symptoms. Thank you for any and all information.

Hey All, I’m from Queens NY and pretty new to this site, is the a summer program I can put my daughter in, she on the spectrum

Advice for Social Events

Advice for Social Events

I have 2 questions.

I had parents that I didn’t know trying to clean up his lines and taking things away from him that he thought he shouldn’t be messing with (like balloons). It drove me crazy!!! I don’t… read more
