Autism and learning disability.

Author information

  • 1Developmental Psychiatry, University of Northumbria, UK.

Autism exists with any level of intelligence, but many individuals with autism suffer also from learning disability. Although both disorders show overlap in some behaviours they are different in many aspects. Are they distinct syndromes which influence each other, or do they belong to a broad spectrum of a condition?
