According to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 11 percent of American children, ages 4 to 17, have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).  This is an increase of 42 percent in just eight years. Studies show that between 30 and 50% of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) manifest ADHD symptoms (particularly at preschool age).  Similarly, research also estimates two-thirds of individuals with ADHD show features of ASD (Davis and Kollins, 2012).

There are many similarities in symptoms between ADHD and ASD -  difficulties in attention, communication, impulsivity, restlessness or hyperactivity - which can often lead to a misdiagnosis. Additionally, both syndromes cause significant behavioral, academic, emotional, and adaptive problems in school, at home, and elsewhere. (Rao and Landa, 2013).

Beyond the official medical diagnosis, educators, health providers and parents, all of whom interact with and provide intervention to individuals with ADHD often lack training on appropriate strategies that can be implemented during education, therapy and play sessions to help individuals with ADD/ADHD.

Research shows that a combination of medication and behavioral intervention often generate the best outcomes, yet educators, providers and parents lack sufficient knowledge of either psychopharmacology and behavior interventions specific to helping individuals with ADD/ADHD.
