Today’s Autism parenting poll is is all about secondary or comorbid diagnoses. This would a diagnosis/diagnoses that are in addition to Autism itself.
There are several common examples of this.
Many kids with Autism are also diagnosed with ADHD, anxiety, bipolar disorder, sensory processing disorder and even epilepsy.
For the longest time, I thought we were one of the only ones that had a child with multiple diagnosed disorders. Turns out that not even close to being the case.
My goal here is to see what everyone is dealing with and help families realize that there are people out there that get it.
Please take a second and share your experience. See how many others are dealing with something similar and be reminded that you aren’t alone.
