    That's the link to the national autism website. Although there are probably thousands of other websites this is the only federally and educationally recognized site for Autism. It lists all the signs to watch for, explains common misconceptions, provides information about support groups and offers links to other educational websites.

    Here's a federally and educationally recognized link on ADHD. It too offers the signs of the disorder, where to seek help, educational information and support groups. Just study up as much as you can, there are significant differences between ADHD and Autism, even when the children are only effected mildly. One's genetic, one's a chemical imbalance.
