I'm confused. Is it 75%, 80% or 1 in 4 i.e. 25%, or am I missing something?

I don't know if I would satisfy the criteria for aspergers too bt I see e my dyspraxia as putting me on the autistic spectrum. Some dyspraxic people seem to have more autistic tendencies, some seem to have more dyslexic tendencies, and some have both. There's a nice little map on the internet of the neurodiverse spectrum which I think works pretty well at explaining this.

Answered it!

At 3, I had a assessment that showed I had atypical autistic features. At 6, I was informally diagnosed with mild AS. (This we did not agree with). At 10 I was diagnosed with PDD-NOS, as I had poor theory of mind, odd behaviour, specialist subjects,dislike of change and routines . At 17 I was diagnosed with SPD and a tremor. At 19 severe dyspraxia and mild ataxic CP. I still have specialist subjects (but now this is ok as I'm studying it at uni!), I don't like uncertainty of situations, I do like familiarity and where I will be/when at different times, and I can get absorbed into a task and not notice people speaking to me. I also suffer from sensory overload if my brain has to process more than one real task at a time. Thats my2p :)
