applied behavior analysis (encourages good behavior, discourages bad behavior)

can be misdiagnosed as ADHD


It depends on: IQ, upbringing, how severe their symptoms are, support systems, and the way they communicate

If they have a high IQ, have a lot of support, they communicate well, and their symptoms aren't as severe they could lead a normal life

If it is exactly the opposite then they may have to live with a relative or in a group home


More prevalent in guys than girls
