Abstract: The association between attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and high functioning autism spectrum disorder (HFASD) is frequent even though they are considered as mutually exclusive diagnosis. Studies comparing sensory, motor and adaptive skills between these two diagnoses are rare. The study aimed to compare sensory processing, motor skills, and adaptive behaviors in children with a diagnosis of HFASD + ADHD to children with HFASD or ADHD alone, and to determine the relation between sensorymotor skills and adaptive behaviors. Thirty-four children, aged 5-14 years (HFASD + ADHD: n = 13, ADHD: = 17, HFASD: n=4) were evaluated with the Sensory profile, BOT-II and ABAS-II. Compared to children with ADHD alone, children with HFASD + ADHD had poorer sensory processing, motor skills and adaptive behaviors. For all children, increased autonomy in self-care was correlated with better sensory and motor skills. Interventions aiming to improve sensory and motor skills could help to increase autonomy in self-care.
