ADHD is one of the most common co-occurring conditions of autism.
Since 2013, when the diagnostic criteria changed in the Diagnostic Statistical Manual (DSM-5), it became possible for people to be diagnosed with autism and ADHD. It is, therefore, important that we have a good understanding of both ADHD and autism and where the similarities and differences are.
This session will give an overview of up-to-date clinical practice for ADHD, considering assessment for ADHD alongside autism. There will also be some focus on ADHD in girls and women and the importance of being aware of this profile, as they are more likely to go under the radar and be missed.
Finally, there will be a discussion on supporting people who are diagnosed with autism and ADHD.
