Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) are two neurodevelopmental disorders that typically commence in childhood. ADHD is characterised by presentations of inattention and /or impulsivity-hyperactivity. ASD is defined by social interaction and communication challenges and restrictive-repetitive behaviours with sensory sensitivity and interest differences, but there may also be attention difficulties and hyperactivity. Research suggests two-thirds of those with ADHD demonstrate symptoms of
ASD and that approximately 30-50% of those with ASD also demonstrate symptoms of ADHD, making these conditions strongly intertwined.
