Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a behavioural disorder that includes symptoms such as inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness.
ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) is a condition that affects someone's social communication skills.
What happens when someone displays both characteristics of ASD and ADHD and how do these two conditions interact with each other? Does one overrule the other? How do I support both conditions at once?
It is common knowledge that the majority of those with ASD also have other conditions from the Autism Spectrum or mental health conditions. The idea of comorbid conditions is becoming more prevalent as research into this area begins to speed up.
Working with Dr Simon Bignell, ASD Helping Hands aims to answers these questions for both Parents/carers and Teachers. Giving you the tools to effectively support those you work or care for with these two very common Morbid conditions.

1. Be able to explain the differences and similarities between ASD and ADHD
2. Identify the overlaps of the conditions and why this can make supporting someone with ASD/ADHD different from supporting someone with a single condition
3. Be able to identify how effectively support someone with ASD/ADHD from a parents perspective
4. Be able to identify how effectively support someone with ASD/ADHD from an educators perspective
