Historically, persons who had attention deficit hyperactivity disorder were not able to also have a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder.  As of the DSM-5, the conditions have been defined such that a person can have a dual diagnosis.  In this episode of Attention Talk Radio, ADHD coach Jeff Copper (http://digcoaching.com) interviews Dr. Meghan R. Miller (http://mindinstitute.org) on this new dynamic that the conditions could co-occur. They address some of the complexities of it and discuss how researchers are really trying to hone in to figure it out. If you got a diagnosis that just can’t be explained by ADHD or autism and you have a hunch that something else is there, you’ll find their conversation fascinating.
