I have been wondering if Schizotypal Personality Disorder, Schizoid Personality Disorder, and / or both can be co-morbid with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Agreements are disagreements are fine, I want to see both sides. That discussion is very interesting.

I don't know if they can be comorbids but I do know that I was diagnosed with schizotypal pd before I got a second opinion and was diagnosed with aspergers syndrome and adhd.

According to Mirriam-Webster:

Medical Definition of comorbid

: existing simultaneously with and usually independently of another medical condition

Which sounds exactly like what is described in this American Journal of Psychiatry paper:

"Comorbid association of autism and schizophrenia"

If the present study group is taken to be representative, it appears that the frequency of schizophrenia among autistic patients (0.6%) is roughly comparable to the frequency of schizophrenia in the general population.

When diagnosed I bought champagne!
I finally knew why people were strange.
