Autism and ADHD

This is an article that came out this week about how often autism and ADHD not only coincide, but also why they may be more similar than first thought. Many of my autistic clients certainly have some of the major indicators of ADHD, and this has been a suspicion amongst those of us in the field for quite awhile. I also appreciate the detail at which the brain function similarities are explained. Check it out below (first link is the news article, second link is the study itself):
