Understanding Aspergers And ADHD

Aspergers and ADHD are two very different disorders. Aspergers is a developmental disorder that affects social skills, while ADHD is a neurologic disorder affecting attention spans. As such, they’re treated differently in the medical community. Aspergers requires therapy to work on social skills, whereas ADHD can be managed with medication or behavioral treatments like exercise and diet adjustments.

1) Asperger’s Syndrome (AS) is an autism spectrum disorder that impacts how individuals interact socially and communicate effectively.

2) Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), meanwhile, has been found to affect about three to five percent of school-aged children in Canada.

3) Both Asperger’s syndrome and ADHD have similar symptoms, such as hyperactivity and inattention. Asperger’s is often mistaken for ADHD because it has the same outward behaviors, such as difficulty maintaining focus and paying attention. Asperger’s can be harder to diagnose because children with Asperger’s are usually of average or above intelligence, whereas ADHD is not related to IQ.


Asperger’s and ADHD are both disorders that affect focus, attention span, communication skills, etc. Aspergers is more difficult to diagnose because it often appears similar to ADHD in its outward symptoms.
