Are ADD and Aspergers related or Co morbid conditions?
Can adults be tested for Aspergers?

There is some disagreement as to whether ADHD and Autism/Asperger's are
related or on the same spectrum, but most believe they are not.

At one time it was thought they could not be comorbid, but now it's accepted
that they often are. A large percentage of people with Asperger's are also
diagnosed with ADHD.

About whether adults can be tested for Asperger's - yes but there are so many other things that can look similar in adults that it's not easy and not as reliable as you would hope.

The inability to understand social codes is unique to ASD.
Not adhering to them may be ADHD.

For me with both disorders the differences are crystal clear.
