Chiari-Syrinx-ADHD-Aspergers-Autism

Postby Lipper5 » Wed Oct 05, 2011 1:49 pm

Hi-
I am sure this was on the board before but we recently received a new diagnosis for one of our 3 boys. One has Chiari and Syrinx. And one has Chiari ADHD and now Aspergers. I spoke with another family that has two boys with Chiari and one daughter with Autism. Is it just a coincidence or does it seem as though these go hand in hand?

I don't know if they go hand and hand or not, but my daughter has Chiari, ADHD, and other things. I know LOT's of Spectrum kids who have Chiari, and and equal amount of spectrum kids who do not have Chiari.
