Yes: Asperger is in the autistic spectrum where language delay is a foremost symptom. Since it is a relatively mild form of the condition it is not too surprising that speech is developing.

Don't worry, act now: Acquiring words & communicating are different. Regression in Expressive Language warrants prompt evaluation. Call your state Early Intervention Program for assessment AND fill out developmental screens on firstsigns.org to show your pediatrician for referral to a Developmental/Behavioral Pediatrician. If he has Autistic Spectrum Disorder, starting therapy now proffers the very best outcome.
