What are ADD, ADHD, and Autism Spectrum Disorders?

ADD and ADHD are Neurobehavioral Disorders caused from a disconnect in the part of the brain called the Frontal Lobe. ADD and ADHD fall into the Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) classification and share many features in common.

Anxiety, Depression, Panic, Fear, Anger, Bi-Polar, Chronic Fatigue, Chemical Imbalances and Mood Disorders fit directly into the same Profile as attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD), pervasive developmental disorder (PSS-NOS), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), Asperger’s syndrome, and Autism to name a few.

These should be viewed as points in a circle of frontal lobe disabilities in which those points share features in common, varying only in severity and location.
