  1. Thanks for the link!

    I added the captions to this because I thought it was a great message that needed to be gotten out to a wider audience. That, and I’m on the autistic spectrum myself, with auditory processing quirks that make it easier for me to follow stuff with captioning…

  2. Thank you for the captions and the resource.

    It’s sad that the videos on that website aren’t captioned – If I get a chance, I will probably offer to caption them.

  4. They do not seem to be linked, and certainly is hard to compare. Both can vary greatly in their severity, and lifestyle makes a difference on the impact.

    Neither one relates to intelligence or creativity, but they both affect the social and societal interactions.

    I am not an expert on either, having being “diagnosed” with ADHD late in life. I do know that for my stuff, I can tell by 10:00am whether I forgot my medicine, by whether I have accomplished anything. Without it, I am very unfocused, and extra forgetful. I am certain there is a component of genetics to ADHD, since I see it in my children.

    Autism
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Autism is a brain development disorder characterized by impaired social interaction and communication, and by restricted and repetitive behavior. These signs all begin before a child is three years old.[2] The autism spectrum disorders (ASD) also include related conditions such as Asperger syndrome that have milder signs and symptoms.[3]

    Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder
    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ADHD

    Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD or ADHD) is a neurobehavioral[1] developmental disorder.[2] It affects about 3 to 5% of children with symptoms starting before seven years of age.[3] Global prevalence for children is approximately 5%, with wide variability dependent on research methodologies utilized in studies.[4] It is characterized by a persistent pattern of impulsiveness and inattention, with or without a component of hyperactivity.[5] ADHD is twice as common in boys as in girls[6], though studies suggest this discrepancy may be due to subjective bias.[7] ADHD is generally a chronic[8] disorder with 30 to 50% of individuals diagnosed in childhood continuing to have symptoms into adulthood.[9][10] As they mature, adolescents and adults with ADHD are likely to develop coping mechanisms to compensate for their impairment.[11]
