Do you believe that kids with ADD or ADHD think differently and are wired differently?  Tell me your expereinces.  Example:  child:  "they said a bad word!""  Parent:  "what was it?"  Child:  "no"!

Yes, autism, and ADHD, can run in families. 

It is called "Autistic Spectrum Disorder" specifically because there is no "one size fits all" problem. There is a very wide range of ways a person can be affected.

Labels, like most anything else, can be either useful, or hurtful.

ADHD, and Autism, are not "labels". They are disorders, disabilities, illnesses. 

Is it a "label" to say someone who can not hear is deaf, or hearing impaired?

I, personally, do not give a rat's hiney if folks "judge" me or not. That is THEIR problem, not MINE.
