On The Topic Of Merging Autism Spectrum Disorders

"I believe that if we take away 'Asperger's syndrome,' people will not know as easily what this child needs to excel in school and in life."

 "For instance, someone who has high-functioning autism may have a learning disability, but someone with Asperger's may not."
~William Brown
