Will be interested to see this as I am one of a minority of adults who have beendiagnosed. In retrospect - looking at my child health records the signs were there but diagnosed as simply dyspraxia (not that dyspraxia is simple) It now seems I have both. As an adult I no longer have hyperactivity but I struggle greatly with organisation of tasks - hence am crap at housework . But I hold down a part time job, I drive and am a wife and mother so I have coped.

I can now see how much it overlaps with ASD. Ds1 has some of the traits. The scene where the family were walking into Wigan and the boy kept running off was pretty typical of a trip into town with ds1. However, it's ds2 who is the very active one. I'd say ds2 was at the upper end of the active scale but not hyperactive. Ds2 also has the ability to focus for long periods of time when he is drawing. It was a very interesting programme IMO.
