Does anyone have any experience with a combination of MR, PDD, and ADHD? What were the primary characteristics and behaviors? Is this common?

PDD and ADHD can certainly can be seen together. Are you sure it is MR and not William's Syndrome (where they are not very poor at e/t, but rather have highs and lows in their testing. usually pretty strong verbally.)? this would make more sense, though i am sure all three can be seen together. any difficulties during the pregnancy or delivery?; this would certainly lend some info...

if you do a search online, there's tons of info. it is apparantly not that common, and often not diagnosed.
