ADHD and Aspergers comborbidity
#1
Hello everyone,

Last November 2014, I was diagnosed with ADHD. While being assessed, the specialist ADHD doctor decided to refer me to an NHS autism spectral disorder (ASD) unit. In his opinion, he was "pretty sure" I'm on the ASD. My ASD assessment is likely to be in February 2016.

Until last November, I was completely unaware of the ADHD and ASD comorbidity. In fact, I had to research the word "comborbidity".

So I am wondering what happens with an ASD assessment and diagnosis. And what help is available. And how help is tailored where there's a comorbidity with something else - such as ADHD.

Any guidance appreciated,

Shinkansen
