September 25, 2017 ADHD and autism spectrum disorders (ASD) often overlap, and some children with ADHD who don’t qualify for an autism diagnosis may still demonstrate autism-like traits — and vice versa.

It’s no secret that kids with ADHD are different — different from their same-age peers; different from society’s definition of “normal;” different from most teachers’ expectations of a successful student.
