Autism Spectrum Disorder and Schizophrenia

This article is an interesting study on the co-morbidity of schizophrenia and autism spectrum disorders (ASD).  While there is no definitive correlation between the two disorders, if you child has been diagnosed with ASD, a quick review of the article will provide you with additional information on how schizophrenia behavior is displayed.  This does not mean that your ASD child has schizophrenia or even has a greater chance of schizophrenia, rather it explains how schizophrenia is manifested in an ASD child.
