My son has just recently been diagnosed with ADHD and Aspergers traits. We as a family are coming to terms with as he is now a teenager!

Is swearing a trait of ADHD & Aspergers I cannot see that it is but it might be?

You might want to post on the SN Children board smile

If you think about it language and communication difficulties are central to autism and poor impulse control to ADHD so swearing is not uncommon! But teens do swear anyway wink

Click here for the Special Needs Children board

Or, if you 'report' your post you can ask MNHQ to move this thread over there for you.
