    No, ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is not an autism spectrum disorder. Although they share some symptoms, they are distinct conditions with different diagnostic criteria. ADHD is primarily characterized by inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity, while autism spectrum disorder involves deficits in social communication and interaction, restricted and repetitive behaviors, and sensory processing issues. However, it is possible for an individual to have both ADHD and autism spectrum disorder, as they can co-occur.
