Reading & IQ: It is best for you to get tested by a clinical psychologist who specializes in learning disorders and Aspergers. Group IQ tests such as given in schools are ok but not nearly as accurate and detailed as a one-to-one w/a pro. Same goes for achievement tests. Whatever the numbers say, just work on being the best person you can be, like the rest of us. Peace and good health.

IQ of 90 ?: I doubt that your IQ is 90 if you are an advanced reader. People can have ADHD and ASD. Check for LD also and get a formal evaluation for adhd

No: Adhd, add and odd are not related to autistic spectrum disorder at all. Someone can have both. Odd is only in children.
