    Children s Research Institute Neuroscience, Children s National Medical Center, Washington, District of Columbia 20010, USA
    Autism Res 2:322-33. 2009
    ..Therefore, ADHD may moderate the expression of components of the ASD cognitive and behavioral phenotype, but ASD+ADHD may not represent an etiologically distinct phenotype from ASD alone...

    Philip S Lee
    Department of Psychology, Georgetown University, Washington, DC 20057, USA
