My oldest has ADHD and my youngest has autism....they both have similar issues, but are very different socially. My ADHD kid understands things you tell him right away(just have to tell him several times) the autistic one doesn't. I have to explain things in terms and details he can understand. While me ADHD kid has been on meds, my autistic one hasnt. But I have noticed that the older my autistic one gets, the more signs he shows of being ADD. ADD/ADHD have been linked to autism and vice versa from what I understand. SO it's hard to say what is what sometimes....but I just listen to the doctors and go from there. Good Luck.:)
