Autism spectrum condition (ASC)

is a series of related developmental conditions that shows up in early infancy and childhood, and its sign and symptoms can vary widely. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common neurodevelopment disorder that usually shows up in early childhood, often accompanied by other disorders or conditions, and can affect a child’s ability to focus.

While the two disorders are different, they can present with very similar signs and symptoms.

What to look for: the signs and symptoms of autism and ADHD

Common symptoms for both include:

  • Inability to pay attention
  • Hard time focusing
  • Difficulty communicating
  • Fidgeting
  • Impulsivity
  • Anxiety
  • Emotional outbursts

ADHD VS Autism

All children have a hard time to paying attention and focusing every now and then – but if these behaviours become persistent and a child struggles to pay attention to topics they enjoy, it could signal an underlying issue like ADHD or autism spectrum condition


Early intervention can have an enormous impact on future development and skills, and as ADHD is common in children with autism it’s important to get a proper diagnosis to figure out the best treatment.

Treatments for autism are as varied as the disorder itself, but will usually include therapies such as behavioural therapy, educational and school-based therapies, and social skills training, and can also include medication.

Treatment for ADHD often combines medication and therapy, but every child’s case is unique so it will always depend on the child’s individual needs.

Some common at-home methods of dealing with ADHD and ASC include managing diet, giving positive attention and educational support, and creating a calm and structured environment.
