Annual Research Review: Infant Development, Autism, and ADHD--Early Pathways to Emerging Disorders
Johnson, Mark H.; Gliga, Teodora; Jones, Emily; Charman, Tony
Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry, v56 n3 p228-247 Mar 2015
Background: Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are two of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders, with a high degree of co-occurrence. Methods: Prospective longitudinal studies of infants who later meet criteria for ASD or ADHD offer the opportunity to determine whether the two disorders share developmental pathways. Results: Prospective studies of younger siblings of children with autism have revealed a range of infant behavioral and neural markers associated with later diagnosis of ASD. Research on infants with later ADHD is less developed, but emerging evidence reveals a number of relations between infant measures and later symptoms of inattention and hyperactivity. Conclusions: We review this literature, highlighting points of convergence and divergence in the early pathways to ASD and ADHD.
