According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 11 percent of American children, ages 4 to 17, have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).  This is an increase of 42 percent in just eight years. Studies show that between 30 and 50% of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) manifest ADHD symptoms (particularly at preschool age).  Similarly, research also estimates two-thirds of individuals with ADHD show features of ASD (Davis and Kollins, 2012).

There are many similarities in symptoms between ADHD and ASD –  difficulties in attention, communication, impulsivity, restlessness, or hyperactivity – which can often lead to a misdiagnosis. Additionally, both syndromes cause significant behavioral, academic, emotional, and adaptive problems in school, at home, and elsewhere. (Rao and Landa, 2013).
