I spoke to my daughters Ed Psych recently and she thinks she may also have 
ADD/aspergers/slight autism but to be honest as we are home ed now it 
doesn't actually make much difference to us - she is just who she is!  We 
belong to our local home ed group with a vast variety of 'diagnoses' and in 
fact all the children are fine but just do not fit into the school system. 
I believe (not researched just an opinion) all these 'diagnoses' are inter 
linked at some level, but I know that by following dyslexic 
programmes/methods of teaching at home our daughter has made a fantastic 
improvement in a very short time.  My husband also has picked up hints & 
tips from her teaching which he says have helped him no end.  I do agree 
research is scant & controversial in many areas so I now just read widely 
look at what will suit my daughter and try to teach her in that way.

The big problem is that everybody has different definitions of all the
"co-morbid" conditions like dyslexia and dyspraxia - therefore research
into their overlap is scant and controversial!

Most psychologists have given up fighting and now focus on the precise
nature of each specific learning difficulty (or Specific Processing
Difference if you want to take a neuro-diverse stance)
