Asperger's and autism are the same thing. Asperger's a form of autism. Austism has a spectrum, Asperger's is just a high functioning form of autism. I should know. I have Asperger's.

And as an aspie this whole thing concerns me. Asperger's has been getting a lot of media attention lately as it is, and after this that media attention is not going to be good for the general Asperger's community at all.
