How is Asperger’s Syndrome related to Autism?

Autism
Usually the Asperger patient has better language ability than the Autistic patient. One could also consider them to be different sections of a spectrum of continuity. Some people call it High Functioning Autism. In my opinion the exact label doesn't matter a great deal, it is what are the needs of the child and make sure those needs are addressed.
