Are the Comorbid Conditions of
ADHD the Same Impairment?
This is an article written by Chris Hayes when he was 15 years old and then rewritten by him now he's 17 years old. It describes the common Neurological Impairments which are often comorbids of ADHD and puts them into 3 main groups. This article also talks about the way that all of these conditions are very strongly linked together.
Dear Andy and Chris,
I've just finished reading the article. I was very impressed with its style and content, particularly the basic idea that all these experiences probably reflect some underlying and fundamental processes. My own view is that categories are not a very helpful way of thinking about human experiences - I can certainly identify some of the experiences Chris talks about as being relevant to me. I suspect most people would do too. This makes me think that if we all experience these thoughts and feelings we only differ in the degree, not the nature, by which they are expressed.
Thanks again for the article - keep up the good work!

I totally agree with your views, all these conditions are just labels. At the
heart of it all we are extreme machines. Neuro-diversity is about extremes of
being good and bad at things.
There's even a whole group set up to cater for the fact that many people, particularly NDs (neuro-diverse) are finding that these conditions all overlap hugely.
