I was diagnosed with ADHD at an early age, but I think I might actually have autism or both, how can I tell and what do I do about this?

    Look up sites listing symptoms! Just avoid ones targeted towards autism moms, use of the puzzle piece and terms like high functioning/low functioning and the word special needs :)

    Usually autism and ADHD look different on the inside. If you relate to autistic people, I'd definitely look into it more!

    Looks up the DSM-5 for autism spectrum disorder! The DSM-5 is what diagnosticians use to diagnose autism, so that is a really good guide if you are able to interpret what the words mean (it is complicated). Also, there are YouTube videos explaining what the DSM-5 for autism means so that can help!
