In Reply to: Dyslexia and Autism posted by Sarah on October 26, 2000 at 04:34:09:

: Hi

: I was wondering if anyone thought that their child maybe dyslexic as well as autistic and what information anyone has on any connection between the two disorders.

: Thankyou

: Sarah
I've a colleague who's child has been dx'd as dyslexic.
but in my opinion he has many autistic tendancies.......probably he has aspergers to boot.
Autistic Spectrum Disorders do have many titles.
Some are often referred to as "associated" or "related" (to autism ) disorders.
bottom line-my opinion- autism is as any dis-ease it can range from very mild cases to
very severe. Autism is Autism is Autism-no matter what the title.
There are numerous case of mis-diagnosis, whereby the child has gone for many years-
maybe to their teens and beyond to adulthood, before a true diagnosiof a specific ASD has
been made. Donna Williams (UK Author) is a classic example she was dx'd schitsophrenic.
prior to the true dx of Aspergers in her twenties.....
sad, but very, very true for so many ASD individuals........
Best wishes,
margaret.
