General Information


related disorders to autism

A quick history lesson.  Autism has been around for a long time, but the percentage of those effected has gone up significantly.  For a while there was a push to "plug" those being diagnosed into specific disorders within the Autism Spectrum, hence autism spectrum disorders.  The push now seems to be back to the word "autism."  



An autistic child may also be diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) when they have trouble keeping their attention on one thing. Autistic children have a tendency to do this.
