What is Autism
Autism is a lifelong neurodevelopmental disorder that affects how people perceive the world around them, how they understand their own emotions and those of others and how they interact with others. It is often accompanied by a rigid style of thinking.
Autism is a spectrum condition which means while people on the spectrum share similar core difficulties they can also have significant differences- some people with Autism are incredibly bright and academically very able and others may have learning difficulties ranging from profound to mild.
What is ADHD
ADHD stands for Attention deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder. Children with ADHD find it hard to concentrate, can act without thinking and may be overactive. ADHD can be further subdivided into mainly inattentive, mainly hyperactive or combined type ADHD.
ADHD is an actual condition and if diagnosed appropriately and found to be in the moderate to severe range would tend to benefit from stimulant or non-stimulant medication.
