I was browsing through the forum and noticed that autism spectrum disorders and schizophrenia are in their own sub category together. Every time I come across this grouping I mull it over further wondering why they are grouped together. Is there a link between the two of them that I am not aware of? I have been thinking about it a lot and I can't think of what the association is that would be any closer than some of the other mental disorders that are categorized with other things. This question is just out of curiousity...feel free to ignore it!! I'm just wondering--I thought I'd throw it out there and ask!
