ADHD And Autism: How Are They Different?

ADHD and autism differ in symptoms and treatment. ADHD, found in about 42% kids, is characterized by short attention spans. Autism, which is less common, is manifested more as issues connecting to people and situations. An autistic child starts speaking later, has slow, repetitive speech, and is socially withdrawn, while a kid with ADHD is very talkative and uninhibited. ADHD is treated with medicine, but autism requires several other therapies too.
