The question is the tittle: How many of you have aspergers but were originally diagnosed as add/adhd?

I feel this question has a significant significance.

My son was diagnosed as ADHD by the paediatrician, he didn't even bring up the subject of Aspergers. It was the school teachers who urged me to get him assessed for Aspergers. Turns out he has both.

I only realised ADHD once I compared my poor memory to other aspies. Then I picked up this book about ADHD and it felt like I was reading about my childhood.

I am very obviously on the autistic spectrum so that got noticed by others first. I love it how they just waited so long to tell me.
