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?

      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!

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

      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 :)
