ADHD and Aspergers with ADHD?

Well my almost 6 yr old got dx with Aspergers at 4yrs old. We have really been struggling with his behavior lately and I'm wondering if we have more going on than Aspergers alone. I did an ADHD questionaire online and he would me the criteria for an ADHD dx. But how do I tell the difference between what is Aspergers type stuff and what could possibly be issues with ADHD? I mean my son struggles in attention and stims alot and has sensory issues but would that just be and Aspergers thing or ADHD on top of Aspergers?

Anyone else out there could give me some insight on the typical behavior of a child with just ADHD or child with Aspergers and Aspergers with ADHD? Thanks.
