When Smart Children, Teens and Young Adults on the Autism Spectrum have ADHD
February 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm MSTFREE
EXPERT: Dr. Thomas Brown
More than half of individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) also have ADHD. Yet often their ADHD is overlooked and not adequately treated because many clinicians and educators recognize ASD but do not see ADHD. This is especially true for those children, teens, and young adults on the spectrum whose IQ is average or above average.
Dr. Brown will offer examples of children, teens, and young adults on the spectrum who have average or above-average smarts and have ADHD. He will describe how such youths can be provided with assessments and helpful treatment for ADHD. He is the author of ADHD and Asperger Syndrome in Smart Kids and Adults.
