Autism Can Be Misdiagnosed In some cases, a practitioner may put an "autism" label on a child because of behaviors and symptoms that fit the criteria of autism but miss other issues that underlie the behaviors.

The finding is consistent with studies suggesting that some children who outgrow autism end up with ADHD. “The symptoms of autism may morph into symptoms of ADHD instead for some kids in this optimal outcome sample,” Eigsti says. The researchers relied on medical records to verify that children in the optimal outcome group once had autism.
