my daughter has ADHD, ODD, Anxiety, Learning Disorders, OCD, anger issues, socialization problems, sensory Integration issues, and I think she's depressed sometimes. she gets bullied at school as well, and no adults seem to ever see or hear anything.
Human brain integrates signals simultaneously coming from different senses. Great article. As a parent to a higher-functioning autistic, this really does explain a lot of what she does. Well worth a read.
