Autism linked to other disorders
USA Today

Many children with autism also have other developmental or psychiatric conditions, including learning disabilities, speech delays, attention or seizure disorders and anxiety. According to new research, some of those co-occurring conditions may explain why autism diagnoses often change as children get older. In a survey by researchers at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in Baltimore, more than one-third of parents with children between 6 and 17 years old reported that their child’s diagnosis of autism had changed over time.
