ADHD can be confused with a variety of other conditions and many conditions can appear coincidentally with ADHD. The most common problem types are ODD and DCD (although both can be seen as “part and parcel” of partuclar subgroups of ADHD), difficulties in reading and writing, IDD, tics and Tourette syndrome, Asperger syndrome and autistic traits in general, depression, bipolar disorder, and in a small number of cases, more severe forms of disability in terms of motor control, including CP, muscular dystrophy, and polyneuropathy.
